Robert Henri Museum Exhibits
The Museum includes a collection of exhibits as well as traveling shows. The permanent collection includes hard-to-find prints of original Henri paintings and original sketches. There are also rooms full of family memorabilia to truly experience the way Henri lived in his childhood home.
Henri spent six weeks in the Prado in Spain to study 63 paintings by Velasquez. Henri's portrait study of Queen Marianna, second wife of King Philip IV, is a 91 1/2" x 48" oil painting.
Brown Eyed Girl in Blue
The Henri Museum has the original "Brown Eyed Girl in Blue" by Margery Austin Ryerson, editor of The Art Spirit, and Henri's last living student.
Dutch Girl in White
In 1907, on a visit to Haarlem in the Netherlands, Henri began a series of portraits including his Dutch Girl in White. It depicts one of his favourite local models, Martche – of whom he made at least ten portraits.
