William Quinn Sold at Auction Prices

b. 1929 -

William Quinn - An artist who synthesized the elements of the European modernists with the gestural style of "Action Painting" common to certain American Abstract Expressionists, William Quinn graduated in 1953 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washington University in St. Louis. Then he headed for New York City, where the Abstract Expressionist movement was dominant, led by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Robert Motherwell.

Quinn exhibited in a New Talent show and then served in the U.S. Army for two years as a training-aids illustrator. Following this, he returned to the Midwest and used the Army benefits (G.I. Bill) to acquire a Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Illinois.

          WILLIAM QUINN (AMERICAN, B. 1929) Oil on canvas, signed lower left. Horizontal, abstracted image with inkblot textures on a beige ground; wooden frame. About the Artist: An artist who synthesized the elements of the European modernists with the gestural style of "Action Painting" common to certain American Abstract Expressionists, William Quinn graduated in 1953 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Washington University in St. Louis. Then he headed for New York City, where the Abstract Expressionist movement was dominant, led by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Robert Motherwell. Quinn exhibited in a New Talent show and then served in the U.S. Army for two years as a training-aids illustrator. Following this, he returned to the Midwest and used the Army benefits (G.I. Bill) to acquire a Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Illinois. Following this, he returned to St. Louis to teach drawing and painting at Washington University. This geographic separation from New York distanced him from the personal angst and pressure of the aesthetic revolution felt by many artists on the East Coast, but not from the tenets of modern art. At the University, where expressionists Max Beckmann and Phillip Guston had recently taught, Quinn had a 33-year teaching career that enabled him to dialogue with American and European painters on the latest ideas and issues in contemporary art. His class duties were minimal, allowing him ample time for his work. Quinn's love affair with Europe began as early as 1957 when the University awarded him a Milliken Foreign Travel Scholarship to spend a year painting in Rome. Subsequently he spent sabbaticals in Greece (1963) and Paris (1982), and often painted during summers in Europe. After completing his teaching career in 1991 Quinn moved with his Belgian-born wife Jeannine to Bruges, where he now has his studio. In this 'European Period' he has "pulled out all the stops". The paintings are spacious and bold, often with surprising color combinations that have always been an engaging aspect of his work. Many of the recent works have white grounds in tension with aggressive, contrasting planes. Others have linear structures that seem to create a 'real' space, but then the lines dart back to surface, asserting the paintings' two-dimensionality, sometimes suggesting landscape or figurative elements. William Quinn works on one painting at a time, not in a series, as he abhors repeating himself. As a result, each painting is a new experience both for the painter and hopefully for the viewer. As of 2001, William Quinn has also been living in the city of Venice, located in Southern France. Information courtesy Jeannine Quinn, wife of the artist. 12" height, 50" length

Biography: William Quinn graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 1953 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, then headed for New York City, where the Abstract Expressionist movement was dominant, led by Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning and Robert Motherwell. Following two years of service in the U.S. Army as a training-aids illustrator, he returned to the Midwest and used the Army benefits to acquire a Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Illinois. He later returned to St. Louis to teach drawing and painting at Washington University until 1991, when he retired from teaching and moved to Europe to continue his painting career. His work is represented in the High Museum, Atlanta; the St. Louis Art Museum; The Butler Museum of American Art, Youngstown Ohio; and several other institutions.
