Biographical Note

Ancel Edward Nunn (1928-1999) was an acclaimed artist known for his super-realism style and acrylic in egg tempera technique. Born on April 27, 1928, in Seymour, Texas, Nunn grew up in several West Texas communities. His early art education included studying at the Dallas Art Institute at age 15 and attending summer workshops under artists such as Dong Kingman and Alexandre Hogue. Nunn served in the United States Army Reserve with intermittent periods of active duty from 1947 until his honorable discharge with the rank of Major in 1969. He did little painting in the military, until 1963 when he met his future wife Reneta, who supported his decision to become a professional artist. Between 1964 and 1967, Nunn searched for a personal style and philosophy of painting, during which time he destroyed many of the paintings he produced. In 1969 Nunn moved to Palestine, Texas, where he set up a studio called The Foundry and continued painting. Nunn moved again in 1980 to his new Morningtown Studio east of Palestine, where he began to create lithographs in addition to paintings. Exhibitions of Nunn's works have been held at the Tyler Museum of Art, Lyndon B. Johnson Library, Museum of East Texas, and the University of Texas at Tyler. His work was published in Ancel E. Nunn: A Timeless World, And Where Goes the Parade, and many magazines and other publications. Nunn also illustrated several works for A.C. Greene and Leon Hale and his works inspired the poetry of Samuel Woolvin in Remnants of Change. Ancel Nunn died on December 24, 1999.
