A satirical look at love and life in the second half of the twentieth century as depicted in the drawings of New York artist, Edward Henrion. Includes an insightful essay about the artist and the work by art critic, Ed McCormack.
Ed Henrion grew up in Detroit Michigan. After studying painting with Alexander Zlatov- Mirsky in Chicago, he moved to New York in 1949 and graduated from the Cooper Union College of Arts & Sciences in 1952. He has been living in Greenwich Village with his wife and fellow Cooper Union graduate, Marilyn Henrion, for over 60 years. Until now, he has studiously avoided involvement in the business of art. Instead, while continuing to create new drawings and paintings, he earned his living as an art teacher at Erasmus High School in Brooklyn, NY before retiring in 1987. Now an avid chess player and science enthusiast, he has finally relented in allowing his wife to introduce his extraordinary body of work to the public. These works have never before been exhibited or published.
