This is a stunning set of 2 unique Henry Pearson Ink on Postcard works, seldom offered in a set of 2. Truly stunning by very under-appreciated important 20th Century Artist, Henry Pearson. 

Henry Pearson was an American abstract and modernist painter. Pearson was born in Kinston, North Carolina, graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1938, and studied theatrical design at Yale University. He served in the U.S. Army Air Corps in the Second World War, designing maps for the Okinawa campaign, and re-enlisted to serve in the US occupation of Japan, where he was influenced by Japanese art and theatre forms. 

Moving to New York in the early 1950's, Henry Pearson studied at the Art Students League of New York with Reginald Marsh and Will Barnet; he remained friends with Will and Elena Barnet for the remainder of his life. Pearson was loosely associated with the Op Art movement and the famous Responsive Eye exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1965. Other influences were Piet Mondrian and Kasimir Malevich.

Henry Pearson was known for his Op Art abstract, multi-colored globes; 'stochastic' or chance-generated paintings; paintings modeled on Dogon, West African, sculpture; as well as paintings based on the map work he did in the U.S. Army. In general, Henry Pearson was best known for his hard-edged abstraction, although not without traces of humor and whimsy. Pearson works are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the North Carolina Museum of Art.

Henry Pearson taught at The New School for General Studies and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts for many years. Pearson was also greatly influenced by  literature and illustrated several poems by the Irish Nobel Prize–winning poet Seamus Heaney. His correspondence with Heaney, and his comprehensive collection of Heaney books, manuscripts and memorabilia, is now housed at the University of North Carolina. Pearson passed away in 2006 after a long illness.
