Description: Edward Arnold Reep, American, 1918-2013, Abstract, o/c, signed lower center. Biography: Edward Arnold Reep was born in Brooklyn, New York on May 10, 1918. In 1921, his family moved to Southern California, where he has since spent most of his life. In 1936, Reep began his artistic education at the Art Center School in Los Angeles, where he studied under Barse Miller (1904-1973), Willard Nash (1898-1942), Emil Bisttram (1895-1976), and Stanley Reckless (1892-1955). It was here that he became interested in watercolor. In 1938, he began exhibiting with the California Watercolor Society. Reep’s life took a dramatic turn in 1941 when he volunteered into the U.S. Army. During World War II, he served as a war artist-correspondent in Africa and Italy. Reep painted and sketched both on the battlefield and in areas where time for reflection and careful artistic execution was possible. His visual depictions of the war are invaluable not only for their candid representation of the devastation the war spread across Europe, but also for their documentation of the soldier’s experience and the fragility of human life. Many of the gouache and watercolor works Reep created during this time belong to the War Department of the Pentagon as well as the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C. In 1946, Reep received a Guggenheim Fellowship for his artistic contribution during World War II. (KSIM10114) {MM}
