Art and Heritage in Central Europe
Edward Quinn was born in 1920 in Dublin, Ireland and died in 1997 in Altendorf, Switzerland. In his youth, he worked at various jobs; he even played guitar and sang for a living. In 1949, he began to work with photography and found success relatively quickly. This was due to his stay on the French Riviera where he took photos of movie stars and celebrities. After meeting Picasso, he focused mainly on the arts. Quinn also photographed other artists and writers such as Somerset Maugham, Max Ernst, Francis Bacon, Salvador Dalí, Georg Baselitz and others.
The extent of Quinn’s work has been documented in numerous publications: Edward Quinn, Photographer, Picasso Photos 1951-1972, The Private Picasso, James Joyce´s Dublin, Riviera Cocktail and others.
The exhibition at the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum is available from 16th November 2021 to 30th January 2022.
