Marsh, Reginald,

1898–1954, American painter and illustrator, b. Paris. Both his parents were artists. After their return to the United States, he studied at Yale (B.A., 1920). He worked as an illustrator for Vanity Fair, Harper's Bazaar, and the New York Daily News, and later he was a scene designer. He then studied under John Sloan and K. H. Miller at the Art Students League. From 1925 to 1939 he made two trips to Europe and sketched for the New Yorker. His lively recordings of Manhattan street life in many media were popular. "Why Not Use the 'L'?" (1930; Whitney Mus., New York City) is typical. Marsh painted two celebrated murals in the Post Office Building, Washington, D.C.

He studied at Yale University (B.A. 1920), became a cartoonist and illustrator for periodicals, and lived in New York City.
