Born in New York City in 1866, prominent painter and etcher Reynolds Beal studied Naval Architecture at Cornell University and painting with William Merritt Chase at Chase’s Shinnecock Summer School in New York. Beal traveled and painted throughout Europe, the Caribbean and the United States. He eventually settled back on the east coast and studied under Henry Ward Ranger in the artist community of Noank, Connecticut.

Beal was a member of the American Watercolor Society, Society of American Engravers, National Academy of Design, Salmagundi Club, Boston Art Club, National Arts Club and founded the Society of Independent Artists and New Society of Artists which was comprised of fifty of the most important painters of the day, including George Bellows, Childe Hassam, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan and William Glackens. He exhibited in numerous east coast galleries and at the Luxembourg in Paris, Art Institute of Chicago, Corcoran Gallery, Whitney Museum of American Art, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Panama Pacific Exposition and Paris Salons, among others.

Beal’s work is held in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Cahoon Museum of American Art, Massachusetts, Florence Griswold Museum, Connecticut, Harvard University’s Art Museums, Massachusetts and in the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C.
