Biography from Annex Galleries:
Warrington Colescott was born in Oakland, California in 1921.  His parents, Warrington, Sr. and Lydia Colescott, moved to Oakland from Louisiana in 1920.  Earning his B.A. and M.A. from the University of California at Berkeley, he continued with studies at the Grande Chaumiere, Paris, and the Slade School of Art, London.

He received prestigious fellowships with a Guggenheim in 1959, followed by a Fulbright in 1966, and National Endowments for the Art Artists Fellowships in 1976, 1979, and 1983. Colescott was a Professor of Art at the University of Wisconsin at Madison between 1949 and 1978 and was named Professor Emeritus in 1986.

His early graphics were abstractions created in the medium of serigraphy.  By the early 1960s he turned his focus on intaglio printmaking and his imagery evolved into social satire and commentary.  He has produced a number of narrative satires, including one on the history of printmaking.

Colescott has exhibited internationally and his work is included in the Victoria and Albert Museum, Metropolitan Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Bibliotheque Nationale-Paris, and numerous other public collections.
