In 2011 an art exhibition celebrating this artist's 93rd birthday was held in London, here is some of the info from that announcement:
Born of Irish parents in 1918, Tom W. Quinn has quite simply dedicated his life to art. A life dedicated to art? Yes, and a heart and soul, too. As this exhibition opens he will have just reached the grand age of 93, but in his rambling, light-filled studio in the Dordogne, Tom Quinn continues to paint every day, – depicting in beautifully soft, chalky hues the world around him – busy cafés, bustling markets, intimate interiors, a game of boules, dappled sunlight in a summer garden and colour-splashed picnics by the river. Impressionist, personal observations of la France profonde, executed with his brushes but painted with his heart and soul.
In the late 1940s Tom attended the Camberwell School of Art, London and was fortunate to study under such tutors as Lawrence Gowing, as well as Victor Pasmore and William Coldstream, founders of the celebrated Euston Road School. T.W. Quinn's artworks have been offered at auction houses and galleries throughout the world, particularly in Ireland and London.
