The Art of Winslow Wilson & Pico Miran: Two Artists – One Life

June 8 – July 8, 2019

Rockport Art Association and Museum

12 Main Street, Rockport, MA

There are about forty Winslow Wilson (1892-1974) paintings in the exhibit and a new catalogue. I look foward to considering his work in person.

Back in February 2017, I wrote about Wilson/Miran in response to a GMG query from the artist’s granddaughter, Claudia Wilson-Howard, and her painstaking research and writing about his mysterious life and forgotten art, and filled in more context. Her excellent work is the genesis for the museum show and rediscovery of the artist. Wilson was a member and teacher at the Rockport Art Association. For local readers, Claudia’s online catalogue about his work  www.winslowwilson.com helpfully provides some Gloucester addresses associated with Wilson.
