A Taos, New Mexico artist,
Charles Reynolds was born in Kiowa, Indian Territory (now Oklahoma) in
1902. He attended both Oklahoma and Tulsa University, and it was the
latter that he met and married Ruth Weaver. The Reynolds have three
children and eight grandchildren.
The artist began painting in
1925, and except for a short period at the Chicago Art Institute and a
brief study with John Elliot Jenkins, he is self-taught.
Reynolds family discovered Taos in 1932, and after fourteen years of
vacationing there, they moved out permanently." I wanted to live there
and associate with the 'Taos Greats' said Reynolds. To him it was a
great inspiration to live and paint with the men who founded the Taos
Colony and saw it successfully launched.
Reynolds is a confirmed
Realist. He is a fine technician and craftsman, as his paintings show;
but he is equally adept as a salesman and promoter of Art. He sells a
great volume of artwork in his establishment, both his own and that of
others. His gallery is perhaps the largest Commercial Art Mart in the
State of New Mexico.
