E. Everett Henry was an advertising artist during much of his career, which he began in the ‘twenties, and he illustrated many advertising campaigns.

   Henry brought to his work a thorough academic training through study at the Art Students League, the School of Fine and Applied Art, New York University and Columbia University. He also did some teaching at the School of Fine and Applied Art in New York.

    In 1935, he painted murals for the Ford Company Building at the San Diego Fair. This led to many other mural commissions, several of which he executed in collaboration with Allen Saalburg and Louis Bouché. These included decorations for twelve club cars for the Pennsylvania Railroad, designs in the Westinghouse Building, the U. S. Government Building and the Building service center, all at the New York World’s Fair in 1939-40. He also painted both murals and easel pictures for private collectors, and is represented in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum.
