ANTHONY QUINN - (1915 - 2001)


Anthony Quinn was a creative tour de force. Best known for his roles in more than 160 films, television programs, and theater productions — earning him two Academy Awards and six nominations — Quinn was also a writer and visual artist who spent the last seven years of his life in Bristol, Rhode Island. He wrote two autobiographies and produced thousands of works of art — paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures — in a wide range of media, from pencil and oil paint to marble and wood. It would seem from the breadth and scope of his artistic production that Quinn never stopped creating, not even for the few minutes between scenes on a movie shoot when he produced small sketches in pen and marker by the dozens. His content ranged from abstract geometric and organic forms to portraits, figure studies, and landscapes.
