About Reginald Marsh
Born in Paris, Reginald Marsh was an American artist recognized for his Social Realist paintings of New York City life in the 1920s and ‘30s. Rejecting abstraction, Marsh included crowded Coney Island beach scenes, vaudeville and burlesque shows, women, and jobless men on the Bowery among his favorite subjects. Marsh was a prolific drawer as well, filling books with sketches made on streets, beaches, and public transportation. He painted in egg tempera, oils, watercolors, and ink, and produced many prints as well.
