Art Brokerage: Henrietta Milan American Impressionist: Henrietta Milan, was born in Chicago, Illinois to parents of Czechoslovakian and Polish decent. Growing up in Chicago, Milan studied at Gage Park High School and Depaul University. Later after moving to Texas, she attended the University of Texas at Austin. Henrietta currently resides in Texas with Jerry, her husband of 44 years. Henrietta is greatly influenced by her extensive travels throughout Europe observing French Impressionism at the Louvre, the Musee D'Orsay and especially in Giverny, France, which she visits annually. She most recently visited Giverny in 2001. She has displayed the intuitive talent and drive needed to fully develop her skills as a self-taught artist. Henrietta uses only a palette knife to create canvases rich with texture. The viewer wishes to touch the painting's surface to "read" the almost sculptural quality of the paint. Her fascination of light and color are used to create beautiful paintings which are filled with life and movement in the tradition of the impressionist masters. A career of coaching and competing in gymnastics seems to have contributed to the actual physical presence of her works. Energy emanates from each canvas. Her images flow easily off the canvas and eagerly into the viewers imagination. Henrietta's favorite subjects are frolicking children, florals and serene gardens. Listings wanted by Art Brokerage.
