Fine Art Tuesday


The Message
Edward Lamson Henry born in 1841 in Charleston, South Carolina. Died 1919.

E.L. Henry's parents died when he was seven. He grew up in New York and Pennsylvania.

E.L. Henry is notable for capturing his sense-of-humor in his paintings and the empathy he shows for rural life. Unlike many contemporaries, he includes Negros (to use the term of his day) in his paintings.
