Three Apples is a simple composition, loosely painted or as some might say, a painterly style.

Robert Henri is one of my favorite “painterly” painters. He grew up in the frontier Nebraska town founded by his father, John J. Cozad in 1871, then named Cozaddale, now just Cozad. It stands on the 100th meridian, which was the end of the line at the time for the railroad.  There you’ll find a Robert Henri Museum. How his name changed from Cozad to Henri is a tale harrowing to live through, but good for the telling.

Three Apples was gifted to a doctor who, perhaps, saved my sister’s life because he knew how to read a lab report. At least he saved her from suffering at the hands of the incompetent.
