SYRACUSE, NY.- The Everson Museum of Art announced the opening of From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland, to be on view February 11 – May 13, 2012.

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland is the first exhibition to examine the American artist's work focused on the Irish landscape and people, particularly children, created between 1913 and 1928. Henri has been long celebrated as an iconic American artist due to his important early work as a teacher and as the leader of The Eight.

“Henri's Irish portraits constitute his largest focused body of work, and often depict the same sitters year after year,” said Debora Ryan, Everson Museum of Art Senior Curator. “These paintings offer a unique and fascinating window onto the genre about which Henri felt most strongly—portraiture.”

Henri wrote that the time spent in Ireland was extremely valuable to him (it was the only other place besides New York where he purchased a residence), for only there was he able to focus on his painting without the distractions of life in New York. It is not surprising, then, that the periods Henri spent in Ireland were among his most prolific, and the paintings produced there among his most accomplished. Just before his death, Henri composed a list of his most important paintings; many of the works on this list were his Irish subjects. Forty-one paintings of Irish people and landscapes will be on view in the exhibition.

From New York to Corrymore: Robert Henri and Ireland is organized by The Mint Museum, Charlotte, North Carolina.
