Tour Scotland Photograph Painting By George Henry


Tour Scotland photograph of a portrait of a Woman painting by George Henry, who was born in 1858 in North Ayrshire, Scotland. George studied at the Glasgow School of Art, later in Macgregor's studio, but learned most from his nature studies at Kirkcudbright. His father's name was Hendry and George dropped the " d " from his surname as a young man. He was influenced also by his collaboration with E. A. Hornel with whom he spent a year and a half in Japan. Henry's importance consists in his influence in the Glasgow school in the direction of richer and more decorative colour. He was elected a member of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1902 and an associate of the Royal Academy. A luminous portrait of a supremely confident Edwardian woman, was recently included in Modern Britain, an exhibition at Melbourne's National Gallery of Victoria, Australia. Henry's pictures in public collections include three in Edinburgh, two portraits in Glasgow, and one in Montreal, Canada.
