Biographies

Winstanley was an artistic contributor to the New South Wales Sporting Magazine during the late 1840s. He is best known for his images of racehorses and sporting scenes. During the 1830s Winstanley formed a partnership with his father as a scene painter. He was a competent silhouette artist.

painter, sketcher and silhouette artist, was born in Lancashire, eldest son of William Winstanley . With his parents, sisters and brothers he came to Sydney in the Adventure , arriving on 2 May 1833. Although William Moore called Winstanley 'self-taught’ as a painter, he was presumably taught by his father. Even so, his artistic precocity was such that his skill in taking profiles was reported in the Sydney Monitor just two weeks after the family reached Sydney: With a pair of scissors, and a small piece of paper, he cuts the features in the same way as an artist would apply himself with his pencil. When the profile is completed by the cutting, that of shading with Indian Ink is resorted to, to throw the prominent parts of the features into relief , and the likeness is then fixed on a card with gum … His terms are very moderate. He appears about eight years of age, but we believe he is older. He was still reportedly taking 'the best likenesses in profile we ever saw’ in July. By October 1834, however, he had joined his father in partnership: 'Mr. Winstanley & Son’ were scene-painters at Sydney’s Theatre Royal. At the age of twenty-three, Edward Winstanley painted the original watercolours for a set of four lithographs put on the stone by Thomas Balcombe , The Five-Dock Grand Steeple-Chase, 1844 , and established a new reputation as a sporting artist. He drew and lithographed Don Quixote’s Remarkable Adventure with the Cattle ...
