Guy C. Wiggins was born in Brooklyn, New York, but was primarily raised in England. He received early training as an architectural draftsman at the Polytechnic Institute in Brooklyn, New York, but eventually studied art at the National Academy of Design under William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri.

Guy Wiggins went to the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, around 1900 to study architecture and drawing. Shortly after beginning his studies in architecture Wiggins left the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute to continue studying painting and attended the National Academy of Design. While probably still at the academy, at the age of twenty Wiggins was the youngest American artist to have a work accepted into the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Although he is best-remembered for his scenes of New York City in the snow, Wiggins also painted many Connecticut landscapes. He maintained a residence in Lyme, Connecticut from 1905 to 1937 and another in Essex, Connecticut from 1937 until his death in 1962.

The Wiggins name is associated with three generations of artists: Carleton Wiggins (1848-1932); Guy Carleton Wiggins (1883-1962); and Guy A Wiggins (dates unavailable). However, the "artistic" reputation of Guy C Wiggins surpasses both that of his father and his son.

CAUTION! Guy Wiggins is HEAVILY Forged on Ebay. Every week you can find a winter or snowy New York City scene selling for $1500-20000. A GENUINE Guy Wiggins sells regularly at "Reputable" Fine Art auction houses for $200,000-500,000. So, you don't need a Rocket Science Degree to figure out what the chances are that the guy who paid $20,000 ended up with a genuine item. It amazes me that these bargain hunters don't realize that the Experienced Market would never sit back and let a GENUINE Guy Wiggins "NY City Winter" scene sell for this far below value. Most would easily pay $100,000 then turn it over to Christies for a very healthy profit.
