Sam Middleton was a black artist from New York who moved to the Netherlands in the early 1960s as part of a wave of African American artists trying to escape racism and the lack of opportunity in the United States. He became well known in The Netherlands as well as establishing an international reputation, with major exhibitions and various museums purchasing his works. He has recently seen an increased interest in his work here in the United States.
