About the Author

Robert Henri (1865-1929) studied art in Philadelphia and Paris. He embraced Impressionism as a student and later, as a leader of the Ashcan School, rejected it in pursuit of a more truthful reality. He taught at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women and the Art Students League of New York, developing a reputation as a teacher who encouraged independent thought in his students. The Art Spirit, originally published in 1923, is a collection of Henri's thoughts by former pupil Margery Ryerson.


"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, painter and former student of Robert Henri--George Bellows "Back cover copy, 1960 Lippincott Edition "
