American, 1898–1954

“Reginald Marsh was born in Paris, when his parents, American artists Fred Dana Marsh (1872–1961) and Alice Randall, were spending time in France. From 1923 he was a student with the Art Students League in New York. There he was the pupil of Kenneth Hayes Miller, who became his friend and encouraged him to paint the lives of the underprivileged in New York.

"He made his debut as an illustrator, collaborating on numerous American periodicals. At the end of 1929 he was introduced to tempera by Thomas Hart Benton (1889–1975). He reached his artistic maturity at the beginning of the 1930s at the time when America was facing the Depression. He belonged to the tradition of the Ashcan School, painting scenes from urban life and exposing its most sordid aspects. He executed some murals for the Post Office Department Building in Washington. He was the husband of Felicia Meyer” (Benezit, Dictionary of Artists, Gründ, 2006).
