2017 Reckoning With Nature: Andrew Winter at Monhegan
Andrew Winter, the acclaimed mid-twentieth-century artist, first visited Monhegan Island in the early 1930s, accompanied by his wife and fellow artist Mary Taylor Winter. The Winters returned several times during both summers and winters, often staying at the Trailing Yew. In 1940 they bought a house on the island and lived there year-round until Andrew died in 1958. Winter became very successful as an artist in New York and throughout the Northeastern United States, and he was particularly well known for his landscapes of Monhegan covered in snow and his seascapes of very rough seas, often with Monhegan fishermen hauling lobster traps.
