Theme/Style Modernism, figurative art, landscapes, still lifes
Media Oils, watercolors
Artistic Focus Employing Cubism and beautiful arrays of colors, Henry Lee McFee’s carefully crafted still lifes and interiors reflect his training in the artistic techniques of the day. Certain of his still life compositions from the late teens and early 1920s rival the best of the European avant-garde Cubists. And his later landscapes display his modernist approach to that otherwise traditional genre.
• A native of St. Louis, Henry McFee studied art
at Washington University, and went on to study in 1908 with Birge Harrison
at the Art Students League in Woodstock, New York, and also at the Stevenson
Art Center in Philadelphia.
