The Painting Techniques of the Simpson-Middleman Art Collaboration: New Discoveries
Shortly after a lengthy article on the art partnership of Marshall S. Simpson (1900–1958) and Roslynn E. Middleman (1929–2003) appeared in the Summer 2022 issue of New Jersey Studies, one individual who owns three of their works contacted the author. Outlined below is the story of those paintings, which now brings to six the total number of original Simpson-Middleman abstract collaborations in their fully developed style that can be located today. Documentation that accompanied one of the paintings provides rare insight into how the unusual Simpson-Middleman team worked together to create a single composition.
