First of all, some irritations due to the name have to be dispelled by the American painter Robert Henri. Robert Earle Henri and Robert Henry Cozad are two names for one and the same person. The painter was born Robert Henry Cozad, but, like his entire family, changed his identity due to a fatal incident involving his father. Henri completed a classical European education after completing his education at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He left the US and studied in France and continued his education in Italy and the UK. A special influence during his time in Paris were the paintings of Francois Millet and the expressions of Impressionism. After completing his European education, Henri joined the Philadelphia School of Design for Women as a lecturer.

The experience of dynamic modernism in the US cities changed the artistic perspective of Henri. The expressions and subjects of Impressionism increasingly seemed inadequate to depict the reality of the modern metropolis. Henri was looking for new, unused motifs in his modern American environment and for a new design language. He had this search in common with a number of other American artists with whom he had exchanges, such as William Glackens , George Luks , Everett Shinn and John Sloan. Together with these painters, Henri stands for the Ashcan School and its devotion to a relentless image of the metropolitan reality.

Henri was at the center of the artistic exploration of the conservative artistic mainstream in the USA. In 1908, Henri was one of the organizers of an exhibition entitled "The Eight," which wanted to make a statement against the prevailing artistic taste in museums and galleries. Henri was also one of the eight modern painters exhibited there. In 1913, accompanied by the eight, the Armory Show, whose goal was the encounter of a larger audience in the US with the painters of European Modernism. However, the works of Cubism and Futurism exhibited there were an artistic challenge for the convinced realist Henri. The rebel against the art mainstream and the art establishment has now become part of the mainstream itself. In 1929, the Art Council of New York declared Henri one of the three most important living painters in the United States. After his death, Henri was honored with a memorial exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum. © Meisterdrucke
