The heir to the Henri estate, Janet LeClair, from New York City, has become extremely interested in the museum and has donated a number of items. In 1988, Mrs. LeClair donated an original Henri painting to the Museum from her personal collection. It is one of the largest works he ever did, measuring 7 1/2' by 4'. We are also fortunate to have three original sketches by Henri, as well as a number of prints of his paintings.
