ANDREW WINTER PAINTINGS FOR SALE & BIOGRAPHY
Born in Sindi, Estonia, Andrew Winter went to sea in 1913 in order to fund his art education. He served on American and British steamships as a mate during World War I, becoming an American citizen in 1921. He studied at the National Academy of Design in New York, and traveled to Paris and Rome to study on a traveling fellowship. He also studied at the Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown, Massachusetts, and the Louis C. Tiffany Foundation in Oyster Bay, Long Island.
Winter frequently visited Monhegan Island off the Maine coast starting in the late 1920s, and he and his wife Mary Taylor (1895–1970), also an artist, settled there in 1940. His paintings won prizes at the National Academy, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Salmagundi Club. He also exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Currier Gallery of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire, and the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, New York. Today, his works are held in many major public and private collections throughout the United States, including the High Museum of Art, Atlanta, the Mint Museum of Art in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the Farnsworth Library and Art Museum, Rockland, Maine.
