Robert Henri: Painting Ireland

Image coming soon.

Bob Duggan blogs about the exhibition From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland at the Mint Museum of Art, Charlotte, NC on view through August 7, 2011.

Duggan writes: "In the summer of 1913, after the landmark Armory Show introduced European modernism to America, Henri needed to reassess his life and art. Achill Island in County Mayo, Ireland became Henri's refuge and the people, especially the children, of the little village of Dooagh became his subjects and salvation…. Henri returned every summer from 1924 through 1928, he bonded with the villagers and continued to explore his portraiture."
