$2,500per item


Two monumental framed reverse paintings on plexiglas sheet by American muralist, Lumen Martin Winter, of fantasy medieval/renaissance jousting tournament. "Queen of the Tournament" and "Ramparts of Mont St. Michel". Priced individually. Each is over 8 feet tall by 5 feet wide. Lumen Martin Winter (American, 1908-1982) "The Tournament," 1960, triptych of oils on plexi-glass. Each framed panel is: 98" x 63", one panel signed. The one titled "The Tournement" with the jousting knights has been sold. Two panels are remaining. Lumen Martin Winter, America's most reknowned muralist, spent his childhood in western Kansas, on his father's ranch, which stood along the Santa Fe Trail. Listed in "Who's Who in America," and "Who's Who in American Art, "the celebrated artist still remembers noticing the ruts from the wagons in the ground and asking his father about them. His father said, "That is the Santa Fe Trail!" The place stayed in young Winter's mind. After attending the Cleveland School of Art, the National Academy of Design in New York City, serving as an artist with the U.S. Signal Corps in the Air Force in WW II, working as a cartoonist and designer, Lumen Winter went to Santa Fe to settle in 1939. The next 39 years were to catapult Lumen Winter into the forefront as America's most renowned muralist and artist. His work, described by Paris art critic in The Paris Moderne, "is not abstract nor is it realistic, but he has created synthesis which is all his own." "I have followed every movement since I was thirteen years old," states Mr. Winter, "but I have found all these movements to stem from the classic ages, even going back to the Ancients. I like the Renaissance because of its vitality and force which is similar to the expression of the 20th century. Science has crept into our art to the point where it is difficult to say what is art and what is science." His rare genius is demonstrated in the murals at the U.S. Air Force Academy Chapels in Colorado Springs, at the National Wildlife Federation in Washington, D.C., at the AFL-CIO Headquarters in the Capitol, at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle, Lincoln Center in New York City, at the Sheraton Hotel Lobby and the National Bank in Washington, D.C. among others.
