ROBIN SAYS: Picasso once said the chief enemy of creativity is good sense. Don’t be afraid to tap into your inner creativity when choosing art for your space. If a piece speaks to you, listen! Your space will thank you for it!

Henry Cohen (1914 -1995), born in Brooklyn, was a life-long New Yorker. A graduate of Cooper Union (architecture) and New York University (civil engineering), he used his training and experience in those disciplines as he evolved as a painter. His initial influences were Orozco and Rivera, whose works he saw during a visit to Mexico in 1946. Over time, his paintings evolved from figurative to abstract, and then to his mature works done in the 1970’s and 1980’s, which were heavily influenced by the urban landscape he loved.

A founding member of the Granite Gallery and Spectrum Gallery, Mr. Cohen participated in numerous solo and group shows including at the John Weber Gallery, Alexander Milliken Gallery, Medici-Berenson Gallery, Newark Museum, 92nd Street Y, New York University Loeb Gallery, and many others. His works are held by the Prudential Insurance Company, the Cleveland Museum, the New York City Board of Education, and numerous private collections. Click here to see more from Henry Cohen.
