NEWMAN, Henry R., artist, born in New York city about 1833. He became an artist, lived in New York state in 1861-'9, and since then has had his studio in Florence, Italy. He is noted for his water-color paintings of architectural subjects, landscapes, and flower-pieces. During 1861-'9 he was a regular exhibitor at the Academy of design, New York, contributing landscapes and flower and still-life pieces. In 1877 he exhibited at the academy a "View of Florence," and in Florence in 1878 a "Study of Pink and White Oleanders," and " Grapes and Olives." The same year he sent to the Grosvenor gallery, London, "Flowers" and "An Architectural Study." Many of his studies are Florentine street scenes, and of one of these, a drawing of Santa Maria Novella, John Ruskin wrote to him in 1877: "I have not for many and many a day seen the sense of tenderness and depth of color so united, still less so much fidelity and affection joined with a power of design, which seems to me, though latent, very great. To have made a poetic harmony of color out of an omnibus-stand is an achievement all the greater in reality, because not likely to have been attempted with all one's strength."
