Born in Brooklyn, Guy Wiggins looked to New York City as the subject for much of his art. He loved to paint the snow-covered urban landscape, often borrowing friends' offices or apartments as temporary studios. Columbus Circle, located near an entrance to Central Park, was at the heart of Broadway's growing theater and artistic district at the beginning of the twentieth century.
