SAM MIDDLETON (1927 - 2015)

Mixed media and collage of various papers, 1962. 406x279 mm; 16x11 inches. Signed, dated and inscribed "For Sally B. Who now understands" in ink, lower right.

Provenance: gift from the artist; private collection (1962); thence by descent to the current owner, private collection, Colorado.

This excellent example of Sam Middleton's rich collage, incorporating the improvisation of Abstract Expressionism, was made the year he settled in Amsterdam, after a long period of travel in Europe and Mexico.
