Robert Henri (pronounced Hen-rye)

by Sarah Judson December 08, 2008

He had a very colorful, if traumatic, “old west” boyhood, featuring his father, a gambler and real estate developer, who shot and killed a local rancher, resulting in the family’s flight to Denver and the assumption of new names.
