Spanish Sojourns: Robert Henri and the Spirit of Spain at The Telfair Museum


Spanish Sojourns is the first museum exhibition dedicated to the Spanish paintings of Robert Henri (1865-1929), one of the most influential American artists of the early 20th century.

Henri traveled to Spain seven times between 1900 and 1926 and produced a substantial body of work inspired by Spain’s citizens and culture. His portraits span Spanish society—from famous dancers, dashing bullfighters, spirited gypsies, blind street singers to weathered old peasants.
It’s currently presented at the Telfair Museum in Savannah, USA and will later travel to San Diego.
