The mystery of his identity deepens when you take a closer look at his art, and notice that his signature changes from painting to painting – sometimes it’s spelled “Henry” and sometimes the French “Henri.” For years, the only place anyone could learn more about Rogers was on a blog called living-in-the-past.com — a site where one man documented his curiosities and passion projects, dating back to the ’90s. The author of this site, Philip Lord, became obsessed with gathering information about Rogers but found nothing in his early online searches. So he started researching himself by analyzing dozens of Rogers’ paintings, many of them seeming to show the same street in Paris from varying perspectives. He wanted to figure out if “Henry Rogers” was a lone street painter in Paris, or in fact a workshop of painters trained to create similar-looking paintings and sign them under a pseudonym. Lord gave up the search in 2011. In 2022, we picked up the puzzle and tried a few new avenues of inquiry. An actual Paris street painter told us that Rogers’ “impression” of Paris was imaginary. We visited a lab in Cleveland, Ohio, that uses artificial intelligence and detailed scans of paintings to distinguish the fingerprints of individual artists. They suggested that Henry Rogers is in fact multiple artists creating similar paintings.

I have 4 Burnett paintings I inherited from my late grandmother. Thanks Vox for uncovering this rabbit hole I'll be going down now. 😮

Another thing I’ve seen in my various travels is that street painters can often start with a pre coloured/or printed image on canvas which they then paint over to simulate a real painting. I live in Italy and I’ve seen it in Florence but I’ve also seen it in Thailand. It’s a fairly common practice nowadays I think. It’s another way of creating a sort of mass produced image. I’ve seen it both for acrylic paintings and watercolours.

You close your investigation after a Skype call and one lab analysis? Wow that was weak.

I collect these paintings for the mystery and grab them whenever I see them in thrift shops. I stumbled across Phillips site years ago and it further fed the intrigue. I never believed they were French, just mass produced paintings sold at mid range suburban furniture stores to people who, like me, dream of visiting Paris one day. It’s just so…human and I think that is part of the art of them.

ha. this is so cool. I bought a stack of paintings on the cheap (like 20 a piece) simply for the frames from a company that was responsible for clearing out an art collection and I got three Henry Rogers painting in the lot and was wondering about them. Not enough to not pull 2 out of their frames but the fact that it was 3 near identical paintings was curious. glad i found this video

The painting at rOjTc3F5UB4&t=6m00s 6:00 is totally impossible IRL, as there's no street that is aligned with the Eiffel Tower this way.

isn't the layout of the building in paris looks nearly identical, is why his paintings looks similar. but still thats the special part about painting, with the skills to preserve the scene with no limitation. that leads to us the future generation trying to figure out where are these paintings came from.

These kinds of rainy French street scene paintings were enormously popular in the seventies. My mother had a pair of them hanging in her formal living room in fancy gilded frames. I spent a lot of time looking at them, because I was interested in art. My mother has never been to Paris, nor has she ever purchased anything from an art gallery. The art she hangs on her walls has always either been purchased in a furniture/decor store or sourced by a local interior decorator. The ones I remember had a signature starting with E, not Henry Rogers (I am bad at remembering names, sorry). I believe these types of paintings were meant to imitate the style of Edouard Cortes, an actual French painter. Mom is now 85, and that pair of paintings was long ago donated to a thrift store since they had next to no value. She moved on to her next decorative cheap paintings, which are in a more Tuscan style (purchased in the 90s). I am from the Midwest in the US.

I didn't realise people would care so much about my works. I just do it to occupy the time really, and I've actually never even been to Paris.
