Description: Reginald Marsh (1898 - 1954), "New York Girl", 1946, Original painting, 30"x22", Watercolor on paper, signed lower right. This wonderful piece depicts a confident young woman strutting down a New York City street dressed up in a hat, gloves, and heels. As she passes a hat shop, she even turns the heads of the mannequins in the window. -- Born in Paris of American artists, Marsh and his family returned to the U.S. in 1900, settling in New Jersey and later New York. He attended Yale Art School in 1916-20 and then moved to New York City where he became an illustrator for newspapers and magazines, such as Vanity Fair and Harper's Bazaar. In 1922, Marsh became a staff artist for The Daily News, first drawing city life and then a column of vaudeville illustrations. When The New Yorker began in 1925, Marsh became a staff member, contributing through 1931. He joined the Whitney Studio Club, where he had one-man exhibitions in 1924 and 1928. He was shown in most of the annual exhibitions of contemporary American art at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1924-1954), the Corcoran Gallery of Art (1932-1957), the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (1932-1952), the Art Institute of Chicago (1928-1949) and the National Academy of Design (1927-1949). He also had many one-man exhibitions at the Frank K. Rehn Galleries in New York. In the fall of 1934, the Treasury Department set up its Section of Painting and Sculpture, a smaller and more selective project than the WPA art projects. Their first project was for two new buildings in Washington, DC. Marsh was commissioned to paint a mural in the Post Office Building, depicting the processing and sorting of mail. Marsh chose to work in fresco, studying with Olle Nordmark, an expert on the fresco technique, before executing the commission. Marsh was also chosen to decorate the rotunda of the U.S. Customs House in New York in 1937, painting eight successive stages in the arrival of an ocean liner to New York Harbor. Marsh began teaching at the Art Students League in 1935 where he soon became one of the most popular teachers. His interest in the human form culminated in a book, Anatomy for Artists, published in 1945, which was based largely on drawings and paintings of the human body by Old Masters, redrawn by Marsh to demonstrate how the forms were achieved. In 1954, Marsh was awarded the gold medal of the National Institute of Arts and Letters.
