Winston Collection

Joan and Harry Winston sent along several KIPP pieces they have in their collection. Several maquettes, ink paintings and LOVE WARRIOR.
Their 1981 roller painting is unique as it contains 9 compositions as opposed to most of the paintings which contain a single composition.
Search on "winston" to retrieve the entire collection.

Special thanks to Harry and Joan Winston for supplying some images of their KIPP pieces, CORONADO and LOVE WARRIOR. Don't miss the image of LOVE WARRIOR with KIPP during a 1992 visit.
CORONADO also appeared in a small Italian show in 1997 with DURHAM.

Decided to spend the day honoring KIPP by scouring the Fine Arts library in East Lansing. Discovered a copy of the Art in Public Places exhibit. The show pamphlet illustrated SCOTTSBORO.
Beautiful day.

Lyman E Kipp Jr (1929 - 2014)

I heard earlier this week from KIPP's daughter, Lisa, that he had passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 30 at his Bonita Springs, FL residence.
It goes without saying that I admired KIPP's work and I will continue to maintain this site with the same fervor in order to document as much of his work as possible.
I spoke with KIPP quite frequently over the phone since posting this site and I knew he appreciated the work I was doing for him.
He always had a great story to relay to me about a piece or an artist friend.

He lived quite a life.

If you would like to post your thoughts, feel free to add them to the site. Lisa has access and the family would love to hear from you. Click here to add to the guestbook.
