Waddington's Auction House Biography and Notes
William Winter's work is part of many prominent Canadian art collections both public and private. His most highly acclaimed works are those capturing the scenes of urban life. Paul Duval noted that some of Winter's best work was produced from the 1940s to the early 50s, and included "penetrating studies of Toronto's inner city.Á His modern style and bold use of colour are on full display here, showing a crowd stopping by shops in the twilight hours of a Saturday night in Toronto. A successful career as a commercial artist preceded his later years as an independent artist which began in 1955. This sketch seems to be from that period of commercial art as it would is reminiscent of some of the work he did for publications like Maclean's magazine.
