Hugh Reinagle

Hugh Reinagle (c.1790 in Philadelphia – May 1834 close New Orleans) was an American painter.

He studied under John J. Holland, and became known as a landscape painter, working in oil and watercolor. For many years, he worked as a scene painter in New York, and produced afterward a panorama of New York, which was exhibited in that city. In 1830 he went to New Orleans, where he died of cholera four years later. He was one of the original thirty members of the National Academy of Design, and exhibited there, in 1831, a “View of the Falls of Mount Ida.” His “Macdonough's Victory upon Lake Champlain” was engraved by Benjamin Tanner in 1816.
