Lot Essay

Winston Branch was born in St Lucia and moved to England when he was 15. His immense talent as an artist was recognised at an early age and he was accepted into the Slade School of Art. After graduating he was awarded the prestigious British Prix de Rome, which enabled him to travel and study in Rome for a year; and a DAAD Berliner Kunstler Programme Fellowship in Berlin where he worked for 5 years. He has recently been awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Greenwich.

Branch’s abstract paintings are noted for their mesmerising and highly emotive surfaces, conjured from the interplay of bright colours that form an entangled web of rich pigment. Branch’s paintings feature in the collections of many important institutions including The Arts Council of Great Britain; The Brooklyn Museum; Victoria and Albert Museum; The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and Tate Modern.

We are very grateful to the artist for his assistance in cataloguing this work.
