February 20, 1992
Artist Natalie Smith Henry died in Malvern (Hot Spring County) and is buried in Oak Ridge/Shadowlawn Cemetery in Malvern. Henry’s works are in the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC, the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History in Springdale, and in numerous private collections. Like many American artists who received their training during the Depression era, Henry worked in the realist style, emphasizing firm contour lines, clearly described volumes, and recognizable narrative imagery. Over the course of her sixty-year career, she treated a wide range of themes using figural scenes, portraits, landscapes, and still life.
