Impressionist artist Henrie (1932-1999) became known for his watercolors and palette-knife oil paintings of California coastal scenes as well as exotic locales he had visited in Tahiti, Mexico and New Orleans. In works prior to 1961, his signature is “Paul Henrie” or “Blaine”. Afterwards, he signed them “Paul Blaine Henrie”.
Henrie boasted he was the “fastest pallette in the west” and could produce several paintings in a day.
Henrie reserved his best work for his collectors and several prestigious galleries like the Grand Central Art Galleries in New York City. Notable celebrities who bought his work included Vincent Price, John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, and Princess Margaret.
