Henry's romantic portrayals of America's colonial past blend fact and fantasy into "historical fictions" that addressed the nation's anxieties in the tumultuous decades following the Civil War. Amy Kurtz Lansing, Curatorial Research Assistant at the Yale University Art Gallery, explores Henry's vivid paintings of early America and the Civil War to illuminate the role of history in late 19th century American life.
