This is a biography taken from the website AskArt about Reginald Wilson.
A low profile artist initially committed to no particular style of art, Reginald Wilson, nicknamed Reggie, first earned a living as a cartoonist, and then after study at the Art Students League, became a painter. His style has been described as "geometric-constructivist". (Falk 3598)
At the League, he worked with teachers John Steuart Curry, Thomas Benton, Harry Wickey and Guy Pene du Bois, but he eschewed teaching art because he did not want to accept responsibility for directing the career of another person.
Wilson was born in Butler, Ohio to a family that had no particular interest in art. During World War II, he was an airplane mechanic. In 1945, just after the war, he went to Woodstock, New York where he spent the remainder of his life, dying in 1993. His good friend, Arnold Blanch, had introduced him to the area in 1939.
He and his wife, artist Carolyn Haeberlin, bought a home on the Sawkill River and lived with their two children. Many of his portrait and genre paintings, ranging in styles from realistic to abstract, were inspired by domestic scenes, especially by his children and their toys. He was a member of the Board of Directors of the Woodstock Art Association.
Exhibition venues include the Whitney Museum of American Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Boston Museum, Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Woodstock Art Association.
