Reynolds Beal (American, 1867 to 1951)

A student of naval architecture at Cornell University from 1885 to 1889, Reynolds Beal took his formal art training under William Merritt Chase in Shinnecock, New York.

Beal’s first solo exhibition was at the Clauson Gallery in New York City in 1905. In 1919 he was one of only a handful of Americans invited to exhibit at the Luxembourg Museum in Paris. His further distinctions included membership in many prestigious societies, including the Salmagundi Club, the American Watercolor Society and the National Academy of Design. He established the New Society of Artists, whose other members included Maurice Pendergast and Childe Hassam. Reynolds Beal died in 1951.
