Robert Reid was brought into the world in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and went to the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 1884 he moved to New York City, learning at the Art Students League, and in 1885 he went to Paris to learn at the Acadadmie Julian under Gustave Boulanger and Jules Joseph Lefebvre. His initial works of art were figures of French laborers. After getting back to New York in 1889, he filled in as a portraitist and later turned into a teacher at the Art Students League and Cooper Union. Quite a bit of his fine art focused on the portrayal of young ladies set among blossoms. His oil canvases would, in general, be embellishing. He contributed with others to the frescoes of the vault of the Liberal Arts Building at the Columbian Exposition, Chicago, in 1893. In 1897, Reid was an individual from the Ten American Painters who withdrew from American Artists’ Society. In 1906 he turned into a complete individual from the National Academy of Design. He has worked in the Congressional Library, Washington, D.C., the Appellate Court House, New York, and the State House, Boston. He passed on in Clifton Springs, New York.
