Guy C. Wiggins was the second generation of a three-generation family of painters. Inheriting the skill and legacy of landscape painting from his father Carleton Wiggins, Guy would develop a style that incorporated the color and techniques of French Impressionism along with emerging American concepts.
Born in 1883 in Brooklyn, New York, Guy began his training under his father. Around the turn of the century, he enrolled in architecture and drawing at the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute. He later studied painting at the National Academy of Design. He is most remembered for his cityscapes and snow scenes.
