Oyster Bay Boats in a Squall

1930

$18,000

About

A Post-impressionist seascape depicting fishing boats in a squall. Signed and dated lower right. The work was exhibited at the Parrish Art Museum in Southampton, N.Y. Listed on page #108 of the catalogue raisonne. An important American impressionist, Reynolds Beal was encouraged early on to study art abroad by his younger brother, noted artist Gifford Beal. Once Reynolds completed his education from Cornell University in naval architecture, and being from a rather wealthy family, he struck out for Europe, where he informally viewed as much art as he could, primarily in Madrid. Once stoked, his lifelong fire for painting never waned. Beal's formal art education began in 1890 under William Merritt Chase in his famous Long Island school. Although similar, Beal's technic is more subdued in application and more vivid in coloration than that for which Chase is known. Inevitably, Beal's nautical education led him to paint primarily ships and waterways. His individual style broadened from early technical portraiture to the surreal impressionist tableaus of broad, sweeping coastal vistas, most often possessing ships as distant subjects. Works by Beal show the various regions he visited over his life. Owning a residence in Provincetown, Rhode Island, northeast coast scenes dominate his output up to 1919. He then began traveling the world more extensively. Occasionally accompanied by Childe Hassam, Ernest Lawson, H. Dudley Murphy and Henry Ward Ranger, Beal painted scenes of the Caribbean, Central America, Portugal and the American west coast. He is widely known for a series of circus paintings he produced in the 1910s and 1920s.
