Robert Henri's Catharine was painted for Michelle Burnett's Following the Masters Challenge. This month's challenge was to be inspired by the work and philosophy of Robert Henri. When Henri's circle was rejected in the National Academy of Design exhibit in 1907, he organized a show of his own that included a group known as "The Eight"...Arthur Davies, Robert Henri, William Glackens, Ernest Lawson, George Luks, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, and Everett Shinn. It was revolutionary for it's subject, gritty urban scenes and "art for life's sake". Their work would later be characterized as the Ashcan School. We could choose to copy one of his works or be inspired to paint a dirty urban from the Ashcan School movement. I decided to copy one of his many portraits, Catharine. I, also, painted his street scene with snow which I will post later.
