Winifred Marie Louise Austen, 1876-1964
Austen was a British artist known for her paintings and etchings of animals and birds. She painted animals that were familiar, from the English country side, and the more exotic, which she studied in the zoo. She was born in Ramsgate England and, in 1892, the family moved to Hornsey, near London. Austen began her training as an artist, attending the Central School of Arts and Crafts, where the young Cuthbert Edmund Swan was a teacher of drawing, especially animals. The latter was Irish, the son of John Macallan Swan, who had himself built up a career as a painter of animals, mainly big cats. Cuthbert followed in his father’s footsteps and he, too, was preoccupied with the study and depiction of zoo animals, notably the lions, jaguars, pumas and other big cats, which he regularly exhibited at the RA and other venues. All this suggests that Austen was here embarking on a period of conventional study, finding a good teacher to guide her ability to draw animals and thus become an applied artist - illustrating, decorating and following a suitable path for a young woman. From 1922, Austen lived and worked in Suffolk and then Kent. She kept a printing press in the kitchen and continued to work into old age. She had established herself as one of the foremost graphic artists of her generation.
