About This Book

An artist for over 70 years and a teacher for more than 60, painter Henry Hensche (1901–92) employed Monet’s Impressionist tradition of seeing and painting color under the influence of light, and he taught his students to `see the light, not the object.` In this book, his student and biographer John Robichaux examines the artist’s basic painting philosophy and methodology, as expounded in his famous classes and workshops on Cape Cod.
A prolific artist and inspiring teacher, Hensche touched countless lives as he challenged pupils to understand how they could make their paintings better by having a particular vision of color — whether in a still life, landscape, or figure painting. One of his many students, Robert Longley, claims that Hensche `showed us that there was no shortcut to great art. His specific teachings on color and light are useful tools in the creation of art, but of greatest importance was Henry's relentless quest for beauty.`
Brimming with practical advice for amateurs and professionals alike, Hensche on Painting is intended to help further develop artists' own visual sense of nature.
