Reynolds Beal Art

American, 1867-1951

Known as one of the early American Impressionists, artist Reynolds Beal was born in 1867 and studied at Cornell from 1885–89 with a focus on 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.

Beal's 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. His 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. 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 also founded the New Society of Artists, which consisted of 50 of the most influential painters of that time, among them, Childe Hassam, Maurice Prendergast, George Bellows and William Glackens.
