Harry Reuben Reynolds (aka H. Reuben Reynolds)



9.5 x 9.875 x 6.625 in.
Gift of Harry Reuben and Zina H. Reynolds

Harry Reuben Reynolds was an art professor at Utah State University and a multimedia artist for forty-five years. He was one of the founding fathers of USU’s nationally recognized department of photography. In form and image, Orange and Black Pitcher is inspired by ancient Greek ceramics and was a change of medium for him. It was made near the end of his Chicago schooling, perhaps as a senior project.

H. Reuben Reynolds was born in Centerburg, Ohio, and graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1923. He immediately joined the art department in Logan, which was then named the Agricultural College of Utah. Reynolds was a dynamic force in the school’s ascendency within the state, which was regarded as having a more liberal approach to the arts. Throughout his career he supplemented his education, and traveled extensively in Europe in the early 1930s. In the late 1930s he studied painting with the well-known midwestern artist Grant Wood. During this same period, he discovered photography, which became his primary medium, and he gave up painting altogether after 1941.
