Robert Reed, ‘Galactic Journal Ginger Snap’, 1999, FRED.GIAMPIETRO Gallery

Reed taught at Yale from 1969 until his death last winter — the longest tenure of any Yale School of Art faculty member of his era — and had a profound influence on generations of emerging artists. According to the exhibition organizers, Reed is remembered by many of his students as an inspiring and demanding teacher, and by the public as a singularly vigorous painter. His work has been exhibited in major museums across the United States and Europe, and is in the permanent collections of the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia, and the Yale University Art Gallery.

Reed lectured extensively and was founder and director of the Institute for Studio Studies in Auvillar, France, which is associated with the Yale Summer Session. The recipient of numerous honors, Reed was awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1980. He received the Distinguished Teaching of Art award from the College Art Association in 2004, and in 2009 was elected to the National Academy Fellowship in New York.
