About

This watercolor entitled “Oyster Bay Sloops“ is by Reynolds Beal (1867-1951). The watercolor paper size is 5 x 7 11/16" and the card size is 7 11/16 x 9 3/8". The ‘Oyster Sloops off Oyster Bay’ is initialed in pencil at the lower right in the painting. There is a title on the card front "Oyster Bay Sloops." Written on the card verso is "Oyster Sloops off Oyster Bay." The painting is in good to very good condition. The watercolor paper is tipped onto a heaver card at the two upper corners and top center. Known as one of the early American Impressionists, Reynolds Beal was born in 1867 and studied at Cornell from 1885-1889 with a focus in naval architecture. His formal art training would come later as he studied under William Merritt Chase at Chase's school in Shinnecock, Long Island in 1896. His love of yachting resulted in paintings of maritime scenes from Rockport to the Hudson, as well as the Caribbean, from his own sailing boat that doubled as his studio. Beal's first solo exhibition took place at the Clauson Gallery in New York City in 1905. In 1917 he was a founding member of the Society of Independent Artists. Reynolds Beal was one of the few Americans chosen to have their work exhibited at the Luxembourg Museum in Paris in 1919. Beal was a member of the Salmagundi Club, the American Watercolor Society, the Society of American Engravers, the National Arts Club, and was elected an Associate Member of the National Academy of Design. He founded the New Society of Artists which consisted of fifty of the most influential painters of that time, among them, Childe Hassam, Maurice Prendergast, George Bellows, and William Glackens.
