Description:
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Robert Reid was an accomplished African-American painter and art educator. He was an instructor of painting at the Summit Art Center in New Jersey from 1970 to 1971 and in 1970, a Professor of Drawing at the Rhode Island School of Design.
When asked for an explanation of his paintings, Mr. Reid answered "One paints without knowing what he paints; he paints without knowing what he paints. Perhaps it is part of him. I suspect, in my case, it is my inner self. I just get acquainted with that way. I am always surprised- truly, always surprised; what comes out when I paint has to have been part of the subconscious- part of the self. I try to be honest."
Edith Carlson donated many objects from the late Robert Reid. Carlson, who lives in Utah, is an accomlished artist herself, known for her large abstract paintings of the desert.
