Photographs are of Sidney Simon alone and with family members, friends, and colleagues. Many of the photographs are publicity shots of the artist in his studios in New York and Truro, Massachusetts or working on his sculptures outdoors. There are photographs of Sidney Simon at an exhibition held at the American Academy in Rome and of Simon with his family. Included is a group photograph of Sidney Simon with Robert Cronbach, Ellsworth Kelly, and Henry Geldzahler as well as individual photographs of Simon with André Emmerich, Robert Motherwell, and Louise Nevelson.
Three personal and family photograph albums include photos of Simon as a child and youth with his mother, father, and other family members. An album of snapshots documents Simon's activities as artist-in-residence at the American Academy in Rome and at the Salzburg Seminar for American Studies; some printed material can be found interspersed among the pages. Twenty-one photograph albums house black and white copy prints and color snapshots that document Simon's paintings and sculptures.
This series is arranged as two subseries.
