About the Item

Born in New York City, Reynolds Beal's year of birth is reported as being 1866 as well as 1867. If one follows the most extensively researched source produced in consultation with the Beal family (essay by Ann E. Berman), the year of 1866 is the accurate one. Beal became a prominent East Coast marine and landscape painter. He had a great interest in yachting and did numerous maritime subjects. He studied naval architecture at Cornell University and painting at William Merritt Chase's Shinnecock Summer School. His younger brother was Gifford Beal, and supported by family money, Reynolds traveled and painted widely including to Portugal, the Caribbean, and the West Coast. He used a variety of styles including Impressionism and Tonalism. As he got older, his work became more complex and vibrant with a mosaic of brush strokes. In addition to oils, he was admired as a watercolorist, and he and Gifford made Rockport, Massachusetts their home. His studio overlooked Rockport's Inner Harbor, from where he drew and etched many harbor scenes. Sources include: Peter Hastings Falk (Editor), Who Was Who in American Art Biographical essay by Ann E. Berman in Bressler, Sidney.
