Robert Henri

1865-1929 America/Realism-Impressionism

 

Brief Biography-Robert Henri was born in Cincinnati in 1865, and by 1883, the family was living in New Jersey. Thomas Pollock Anshutz was his master in the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts before moving to the Académie Julian in Paris to study under William-Adolphe Bouguereau. In America, he founded what became known as the Ashcan School. It rebelled against academicism and impressionism, favouring realism. From 1913 until he died in 1929, Henri painted annually in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Achill Island on the Irish west coast. His works from these locations proved to be very successful.
