Biography from Wickliff & Associates Auctioneers, Inc.:
Edward Lee Winslow was born near Tuscola, Illinois, only son of Nathan Winslow, a confederate veteran of the Civil War.  He spent his boyhood and early manhood in Fairmont, Indiana, where he studied with artist/educator Olive Rush (1873-1966).
 
He moved to Indianapolis in 1902, becoming a sign writer and commercial artist.  He worked for Fertig and Keevers and Company, and operated a cooperative sign company.  He maintained his own studio for 15 years.
 
After 1932, he devoted his time to painting.  Working mostly in oil he recorded the Indianapolis scene and rural central Indiana.  In reality, he was largely a self-taught artist.  He was quite adept at wood sculpture but few pieces were ever completed.
 
He always drew and painted on the spot, en Plein Aire.  He would spend many hours in the fields or on sidewalks until he completed the painting.  He adored children and encouraged them to watch him paint.  It was always a great thrill for them to observe the painting emerging on the canvas.  
 
There were always crowds whenever he set up his easel, whether in the city or country.  He had no interest in painting from prints or photographs.  He loved to feel the environment of the scene he was painting; hence, the spontaneous but rather quiet vigor of his work.
 
He was a member of the Indiana Artists Club and Hoosier Salon (exhibit dates 1935, ’36, ’39), and also exhibited at the Herron Art Institute of Indianapolis and The Art Review.  His work was primarily sold and exhibited by two historic Indianapolis art galleries and framers, Lyman Brothers and the H. Lieber Company.  Mr. Winslow is listed in Who’s Who in American Art and in Flora Lauter’s book Active Indiana Artists, 1940.
