Guy Carleton Wiggins, better known as Guy Wiggins, is the son of the renowned Barbizon School painter Carleton Wiggins. He demonstrated an aptitude for drawing at an early age, and initially intended to study architectural draftsmanship. While he would ultimately change his focus to painting, manmade structures became a central motif in his work throughout most of his career. Among his most iconic paintings are those featuring urban winter scenes, and New York City’s streets. Later in his life, Wiggins turned his attention to rendering delicate landscapes. He attended the National Academy of Design in New York, where his teachers included William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri. In the 1920s, he rallied with other young painters at the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts to develop a uniquely American form of French Impressionism.
