About the Author

Robert Henri (1865-1929) was an American artist, teacher, and an outspoken advocate of modernism in painting. He is best known for his leadership of the group of realist painters known as "The Eight," later termed the Ashcan School. Henri was a devotee of realism and the usage of everyday city life as a subject matter. He taught at the Art Students League in New York from 1915-1928, and had a profound influence upon early 20th century painters such as Stuart Davis, Rockwell Kent, and Edward Hopper.

Reviews

"I would give anything to have come by this book years ago. It is in my opinion comparable only to the notes of Leonardo and Sir Joshua...One of the finest voices which express the philosophy of modern men in painting."
--George Bellows
