"Lee Simonson (June 26, 1888, New York City - January 23, 1967, Yonkers) was an American architect painter, stage setting designer. He acted as a stage set designer for the Washington Square Players (19151917) , when it became the "Theatre Guild" in 1919, also he became a stage setting staff of the theater." "He forsook the elaborate illusions of the realistic stage for the frank use of conventions suited to the meaning and action of particular plays. For John Masefields Faithful (1919) he used Japanese screens, and for George Bernard Shaws Back to Methuselah (1922) he projected lantern slides. Simonson was also active as an art critic, painter, magazine editor, and theatre consultant. His published works include The Stage Is Set (1932) , an important essay on the theatre; an autobiography, Part of a Lifetime (1943) ; and The Art of Scenic Design (1950)."
