This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Described as "Vermont's most prolific and accomplished scenic artist" working all over the state between 1885 and 1915, Charles Henry was born in Guilford, Vermont and with his family then settled in North Ferrisburgh.  He also did scene painting for theatres in New Hampshire, New York and Canada, and this activity followed a time when he was a machinist and china painter.  In his scene painting and curtain repertoire were a "mill pond, a rustic cabin interior, a fancy parlor interior and a street scene."  About 50 of his works are still in existence.  One of them, a "spectacular Roman chariot race curtain" is in Westminster, and others are in Concord, Huntington, Hardwick, Albany and Saxtons River.

With his family, he traveled and in addition to painting scenery, they performed music and vaudeville plays and, on the road for several months at a time, called themselves the Henry Theatrical Players.  They traveled in a horse-drawn wagon and later a Model T Ford, which carried their costumes and musical instruments.
