Abstract:
Harriet Elizabeth Winn (Winn) Albury, commercial artist and watercolour and portrait painter, was born 2 October 1896 in Goulburn, third daughter and youngest child of Joseph John Henry Albury, engine driver, and his wife Julia Spicer. Joseph Albury
was the son of Henry Albury and Harriet Elizabeth Winn and was a younger brother of Louisa Lawson, founder of Australia's radical women's paper The Dawn and mother of poet Henry Lawson.

Winn Albury studied art at Sydney Technical College and in the late 1920s travelled to the United States with her sister Ethel. Winn worked as a commercial artist in California and studied at the Mary Hopkins Academy of Fine Arts in San Francisco. She returned to Australia around 1930 and worked as a commercial artist for several Sydney department stores, including Bebarfalds, Grace Bros and Anthony Hordern's. In later years she painted portraits on commission.

She died at Hornsby on 26 July 1994. Her deceased estate was sold in March 1995 through Sydney auctioneers Hamilton & Miller and included furniture and effects from the family home at Hornsby, watercolours by both Winn and her sister Ethel Albury, folios of designs for lampshades, and other commercial artwork.
