I can't get enough of this book, which records the thoughts of one of the great American artist and teacher, Robert Henri. Whether you read it straight through or browse and read, it always offers information, insight and inspiration. I recommend it highly to artists. Just look at the list of great artists ( and their range of styles) that Henri taught -- George Bellows, Joseph Stella, Edward Hopper, Rockwell Kent, Norman Raeben and Stuart Davis, among others. Henri was a great teacher because he instilled skill and enthusiasm in his students while encouraging them to develop their own style. Many lesser teachers teach a specific style. It is not often that one person can be a great artist and great teacher, but Henri was both. Artists should read and keep this book as a reference. I'm giving copies to artists on my gift list this year.

This is a great book for artists at any stage in their career. I have read parts of it over and over again over the years. I ordered a new copy after I lost my older copy. It arrived promptly and is in great shape

"The Art Spirit" should be essential reading for anyone who is a Painter and an aspiring Artist. Great book. Great teacher. Thanks. Brian Mc.
