Lavish full-color catalog is paired with seven new essays and short biographies of more than 400 of Henri's students.
This catalog is the companion book of an exhibition that featured the works of an exceptional group of artists: the women students of the American art teacher Robert Henri. Less known than most of his male students, these women not only produced great art, but participated in the modernizing of the role of women in contemporary society, in spite of the many gender-related obstacles met along the way, in productivity, sales, and the general reception of their work. The many essays, thoroughly documented, give an insightful account of these factors, with specific information for each individual artist, while the beautiful catalog demonstrates the talent of these women.
Robert Henri (1865-1929) was an American painter and teacher, a leading figure of the Ashcan School of American Realism. The group he founded that came to be known as "The Eight" waged war against the restrictive, conservative National Academy of Design.
