[SIZE=3]NEW YORK.-Joseph Solman died in his sleep, at his long-time home in New York City, on April 16th, 2008. Joseph Solman was an American painter, a founder of The Ten, a group of New York City Expressionist painters in the 1930s. His best known works include his "Subway Gouaches" depicting travellers on the New York subways.

I had never heard he was the founder. Interesting. In doing the research for the bookstore section on The Ten, I never saw his name mentionedl http://portraitartist.com/bookstore/history-theten.htm
