A vibrant oil still-life showing a jug of cream and plum colored anemones set on a table draped with a blue-and-white striped and tasseled cloth. Anemone is a genus of flowering plants in the buttercup family Ranunculaceae. Plants of the genus are commonly called windflowers.


Born in North Carolina, Helen Winslow first studied under Robert Brackman at the Art Students League in New York City. After moving to Los Angeles in 1951, she furthered her studies at the Otis Art Institute. Although she explored many styles of painting throughout her long and productive career, studying with such notable California modernists as Roger Kuntz, James Hunter, Robert Frame, and Sueo Serisawa, her greatest inspiration came from the French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. Winslow became a lifetime member of the Art Students League in New York and also held memberships in the Society of Western Artists (San Francisco), the Royal Society of Arts (Great Britain), and the Los Angeles Art Association. She was the subject of many one-woman shows in prominent galleries throughout the West, and her work appeared in juried exhibitions including the Salon des Nations in Paris (1983), the Society of Western Artists Annual (De Young Museum, San Francisco), and the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, among others.


Helen Winslow is listed in all relevant art biographical dictionaries and her work is cited in the 1980 edition of World Who's Who of Women, Who's Who of American Women (1983), and the Foremost Women of the Twentieth Century (1984). Winslow's work is also catalogued in the archives of the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C. We are pleased to offer a major work by this leading American Modernist.
