Lumen Martin Winter was an important American artist for more than 50 years, creating major murals at the United Nations in NYC, the AFL-CIO Building in Washington, DC, St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church by Lincoln Center, several US Post Offices and much, much more. He even designed the official logo for NASA’s Apollo XIII. His fine art portfolio included colorful landscapes, abstract art, and mosaic works. Winter was a long time member of the Salmagundi Club and a signature member of the American Watercolor Society.

Mr. Katlan recognized the importance of Winter's work and is now presenting it to the art world for re-appraisal 35 years after Winter's death with hopes of bringing renewed light and appreciation of the artist's role in American art history. In 2015, he worked extensively with Long Island Museum in Stony Brook to produce a major retrospective of the artist accompanied by a catalog.
