Robert Henri: “Eva Green”, 1907: Art That I Love.

Robert Henri (1865-1929), Eva Green, 1907.

I like how Robert Henri, uses broad strokes and each one has a purposes. He is also more known as a teacher than a painter. He was the Leader of the Eight and their work was greatly admired.

Did you know:
The Ashcan School was a small group of artists who sought to document everyday life in turn-of-the-century New York City, capturing it in realistic and unglamorized paintings and etchings of urban street scenes. It largely consisted of Robert Henri and his circle. Henri, an influential teacher, was an admirer of the unpretentious and masculine realism of Thomas Eakins and Thomas Anshutz. In addition to Henri, the Ashcan School consisted of George Wesley Bellows, William J. Glackens, Everett Shinn, George Luks and John Sloan. The spirit of the Ashcan School was continued in the American Scene Painting of the 1920′s and 1930′s.(1)
