Ann Winn [1930-2015]

[From the Community Collection, a public trust in Agincourt, Iowa]

WINN, Ann (1930–2015; British)

A Scene in Greece

date unknown

oil on canvas / 9 1/2 inches by 10 inches

Late British artist Ann Winn is a recent addition to the collection, possibly acquired from the London gallery which represents her estate or from her participation in a Chicago art fair. During her lifetime, she exhibited in many solo shows in London and group exhibitions including Royal Academy, New English Art Club, London Group, Royal Society of British Artists, International Art Fair London, Chicago International Art Fair, Surrey University, Arts Council Travelling Fair, National Academy in Greece. Public collections include Paintings In Hospitals, County Councils, British Museum Poster Museum of Mankind.

This delightful minimalist sample of Winn’s work gives us a glimpse of rural Greece, such as might have been seen in the corner of an eye while passing in a bus or train, then rendering it just as quickly on a shard of canvas hours later, the vivid memory of a moment.
