The campaign includes media and trade relations for international cultivation on behalf of Anthony Quinn's iconic catalog of highly valued works of art.
Workhouse, one of the country's leading public relations and integrated creative agencies, today announced that it has been selected as Agency of Record for The Anthony Quinn Estate. Quinn's iconic catalog includes thousands of highly valued works of art, from paintings, drawings, prints, and sculptures created in a wide range of media, from pencil and oil paint to marble and wood.

The assignment is effective immediately.
Anthony Quinn (1915-2001) was a creative tour de force. Best known for his roles in more than 160 films, television programs, and theater productions —earning him two Academy Awards, six nominations, and the Golden Globe's Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award — Quinn was also a writer and visual artist who spent almost a decade living and working in Bristol, Rhode Island, where the preponderance of his work and collection still resides.
A ferocious observer of the world around him, Quinn had a burning desire to interpret and make sense of his surroundings using whatever artistic tools he had available, whether that be his body and voice, a paintbrush and canvas, or a block of wood and some carving tools. It is precisely this Duende, which also comprises a dark and restless spirit, that fueled Anthony Quinn's prolific artistic career.
As a prolific sculptor, Quinn's development began with sketches and drawings that he created while traveling during his film career. He carefully contemplated each form, finding just the right balance between the negative and positive space, and visualized them on a grand scale. Quinn later translated the sketches into wooden maquettes.
In his lifetime, success was predicated on hard work, dedication, and the influence of great artists and pioneers with whom he crossed paths: Frank Lloyd Wright, John Steinbeck, John Barrymore, Errol Flynn, Marlon Brando, Charlie Chaplin, Laurence Olivier, Spike Lee, and many others. Although he was best known for his work in film, throughout his life, he developed an equal significance as an artist across many different media and stayed involved and engaged in civil rights activism and many humanitarian causes.
Artwork by Anthony Quinn for sale is sold exclusively and directly by the Anthony Quinn Estate produced by the artist before his death, authenticated, and each is in mint condition. For more information, visit https://www.anthonyquinn.com
