Summary

Wynter moved to Cornwall in1945 and the paintings from this period are of the dramatic local landscape in a neo-romantic style. He began experimenting with monotype soon after the move and would on occasion use the technique as a starting point for his paintings. This monotype was included in the first exhibition of the Society of London Painter-Printers shown at the Redfern Galley in1948, and was one of a number of prints he produced during the period. By the mid 1950s he had radically altered his style and began to paint totally abstract works on a much large scale.
