    Guy Carleton Wiggins was an American artist who was best known for his paintings of New York City’s snowy streets, landmarks and towering skyscrapers during winter.

    Wiggins was born in Brooklyn into an artistic family; his father Carleton Wiggins was an accomplished artist who gave his son his first training as a painter. Later he enrolled in architectural school, but decided to study painting instead and so enrolled into the National Academy of Design. His teachers at the academy were William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri.

    Throughout his career, Wiggins painted in an impressionistic style. He traveled New England painting the landscapes and capturing on canvas the various seasons of the year. He became one of the youngest members of the Old Lyme Art Colony of Old Lyme, Connecticut, and painted alongside his father, Carleton, Childe Hassam, and Frank Vincent DuMond.

    Wiggins taught art in New York and Connecticut and enjoyed a long and successful career as a painter. He died in St. Augustine, Florida in 1962.
