Andrew Winter



Andrew Winter was born in Sindi, Estonia, on April 7, 1892, as Andres Jüri Winter. It is unclear when he anglicized his name. At the outbreak of World War I, with only a year of experience working on square-rigged ships, Winter became a mate on British, and then American naval steamships. In 1921, Winter gained American citizenship and moved to New York City to study at the National Academy of Design. Winter earned a travel fellowship in 1925 to study art in Paris and Rome for a short period. After returning to the United States, he spent time at ​​the Cape Cod School of Art in Provincetown, MA, and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation in Cold Spring Harbor, NY. In the late 1920s, Winter began taking frequent trips to Monhegan Island, Maine; by 1940 he settled there permanently with his wife. Winter would join the crews of lobster boats and sail a rowboat around the island to study and paint the cliff sides, rocky coastline, and rough seas of Monhegan. He had several exhibits in his lifetime, including one at his alma mater and the Salmagundi Club in New York, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the exhibition of work by foreign-born American artists at the 1939 World’s Fair. Winter died on October 27, 1958.
