The Beals were both students of William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri. Both brothers came from wealth, but only Reynolds benefited. Unfortunately, though he was important in early twentieth-century American impressionism, a debilitating illness in the 1930s curtailed his artmaking.

Gifford Beal had to make a living. He was president of the liberal, non-degreed Art Students League of New York for twelve nonconsecutive years between 1916 and 1930, and taught there in 1931 and 1932.
