H. Edward Winter

(American, 1908–1976)


Overall: 61.6 x 61.6 cm (24 1/4 x 24 1/4 in.)

Gift of The Cleveland Art Association 1940.349



Through his writing, lectures, and prolific artistic output, Winter championed enameling and increased public awareness of its creative potential. Given after-hours access to raw materials, industrial air compressors, and large kilns at the Ferro Enamel Corporation in Cleveland, he pioneered works of impressive design and scale. His Plaque: Mexico is a lyrical abstracted landscape populated by calla lilies and butterflies.
