Reginald Jones, R.B.A (1857–1920) was an English landscape painter, who predominantly worked in oil, watercolour and pastel.
He travelled widely, particularly in France, Spain and Italy, producing many paintings of the landscapes he witnessed. Jones often travelled and worked with artist friends and contemporaries including Terrick williamsand Fred Kahl.
After viewing Jones' work at the Royal Institute exhibition of March 1889, the English artist and critic Walter Sickert commented 'I am not sorry for Reginald Jones or Raven Hill. Their accomplished chic can hold its own anywhere. It is not progressive art, though a course of it might be a wholesome tonic to our stippling brigade.
During the winter months when opportunities to travel abroad were scarce, Jones gave lessons in water-colour painting at his studio near Hyde Park, London.
In 1905 Jones married Jessie Mary Hacon (1860–1951)of Hackney, in High Wycombe. She was the daughter of the late Edward Dennis Hacon(Surgeon & GP) & Clara Turner

He exhibited Silver Birch at the Royal Academy in 1906 and The Gipsy Encampment in 1907. Additionally, A Forest Stream was exhibited at Institute of Painters in Oil Colours in 1884.
The Mill Pond was exhibited at the Panama – Pacific International Expo, San Francisco, California, 1915.
