About the Artist:
Robert Henri was born Henry Cozad in 1865. Influenced by Thomas Eakins, he studied in Paris at the Academy Julien and the Ecole des Beaux Arts.As a member of "The Eight", he publicly rejected the restraints of the National Academy of Design. He argued that works and influences of the past should guide but not dominate an artist's works.
He changed his name as a result of a land dispute in which another man was killed. Although exonerated, he moved himself and his family and became Robert Henri (pronounced hen-rye, rhyming with Buckeye as a nod to his Ohio roots).
