Although he was born in France, Henry Farny immigrated to North America early in life and settled in Cincinnati, Ohio where he spent most of his life.
Learning the Arts
His education took him back to Europe & he studied in Dusseldorf and Munich learning some of the most sophisticated artistic techniques available during that time. Interestingly enough it was his artistic influences in Europe that convinced Farny to visit the American West.
After he returned from studying abroad Henry spent quite a bit of time in the west gaining inspiration for his art. Later, back in his Cincinnati studio he applied this inspiration and created his prolific paintings of the Native people of the American West.
