Marine painter. He was the son of Ramsay Richard Reinagle, RA. According to a letter in the RA archive his father ‘would not allow him to draw, as a study till he was 16. His forte was /shipping’ (RAA/CL/3/2). He studied with his father and exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1822. He painted scenes which he had witnessed during the Greek War of Independence and sailed to Portugal in the 1830s with the fleet commanded by Captain Charles Napier.
