Grace Henry HRHA (née Mitchell) (Landscapes/Flowers/Portraits)(1868-1953)

Born in Peterhead, Scotland, the second of ten children of a Church of Scotland Minister,  Emily Grace Mitchell studied drawing and painting at the Blanc Garrins Academy in Brussels and the Delecluse Academy in Paris.  Much later, like Mainie Jellett, Evie Hone and May Guinness before her, she studied in the Parisian atelier of Andre Lhote. It was in Paris, in 1900, that she met her husband-to-be, Paul Henry, whom she married thre years later in London.

In 1910, while still in London, the couple began exhibiting at the Royal Hibernian Academy.  In the same year, a chance holiday on Achill Island, off the Mayo coast, prompted their 7-year move to the West of Ireland in 1912, which heralded much of the familiar landscape painting by these artists.

Returning to Dublin in 1920, along with Eva Hamilton and others they co-founded the Society of Dublin Painters, which became synonymous with the avant-garde.  Grace eventually separated from Paul, who later omitted all reference to her in his two-volume autobiography.  During the 1920s and 1930s, she traveled widely throughout Italy and France, pausing in Paris to study under Andre Lhote.

Returning to Ireland, she continued exhibiting in Dublin (eg. at the Victor Waddington and Dawson Galleries) and also in London.  Although some 30 of her works were shown at the Royal Hibernian Academy, she was never even elected an Associate Academician. Finally in 1949, four years before her death, she was made an Honorary Member.

Examples of her works can be found in numerous collections across Ireland, including the National Gallery, the Hugh Lane Gallery, the Limerick City Art Gallery, the Crawford Gallery in Cork, the Waterford City Art Gallery Collection and the Ulster Museum in Belfast.
