reginald marshAmerican (1898-1954)

Marsh disliked modern art. He admired artists like Delacroix and Rubens. His choice of subject matter, low society, contrasted greatly with his family and upbringing. He became a second-generation Ash Can painter, an Urban Realist who focused on the day-to-day lives of the people around him.Marsh’s work belongs to many important museum collections including: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Art Institute of Chicago; the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington D.C.; and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.
