HENRY HENSCHE 

Born in Germany, Hensche (1899 - 1992) came to the United States by way of Belgium and the Art Institute of Chicago.  He later studied at the Art Students’ League of New York and Charles Hawthorne’s Cape Cod School of Art. Hensche became assistant instructor to Hawthorne and was instrumental in taking Hawthorne’s approach “mudheads” a step further to the “color block studies,” which are effective in developing the painter’s basic visual ability. From 1932-1935 he taught with no name to his school but in the summer o 1935 he began using the name The Cape Cod School of aught and taught ‘en plein air’ in the Hawthorne tradition.
