Henry Isaacs currently lives and works on Little Cranberry Island, Islesford, Maine. He has painted at sites throughout the United States and abroad, including Europe and Africa. For more than thirty years, his paintings have focused on the natural and inhabited landscape. In the 1970ís and 1980ís, Henry often painted figure poses over a period of many weeks. Today, he returns to favorite locations, as if to a still life, bringing even greater intensity to his plein-air paintings.

The recipient of numerous grants and awards, Isaacs received degrees in painting and printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design and at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London. Isaacs has taught in art schools in England and Italy, as well as in the United States, where he taught for many years at Massachusetts College of Art. His work is represented by Gleason Fine Art, Islesford Dock Gallery, and Warm Springs Gallery in Virginia.

Henry Isaacsí paintings may be found in public and corporate institutions as well as in private collections across the country. Universities, law firms, conference centers, banks and individuals have commissioned paintings and drawings of specific locations.

CELT is grateful to Henry Isaacs for his generosity in making this silent auction possible. His love of nature, so evident in his work, complements CELTís mission to permanently conserve and provide stewardship for lands cherished by the community.
