Guy C. WigginsCelebrated for his Manhattan snow scenes, Guy Wiggins’s vibrant cityscapes captured the movement and color of the early-twentieth century. The son of the landscape painter Carleton Wiggins, Guy honed his technique under William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri and drew inspiration from the French Impressionist movement. Charged with energy yet subdued under covers of snow, his idealized depictions of New York proved extremely popular, earning him honors throughout his career. At the age of twenty, Wiggins became the youngest artist to have his work accepted into the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s permanent collection, and he soon won prizes from the Salmagundi Club, the Rhode Island School of Design, and the Art Institute of Chicago. His paintings are also in the White House, the National Gallery of Art, and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
