George Henry was a Scottish painter, and one of the most prominent of the Glasgow School. Henry's importance consists in his influence in the Glasgow school in the direction of richer and more decorative colour. In addition to genre and landscape, he also painted portraits, more distinguished by technical ability than by rendition of character.
In 1893 he went to Japan with Edward Atkinson Hornel, another of the Glasgow Boys for an 18-month study tour. His work thereafter continued to have a strong Oriental flavour. He was elected a member of the Royal Scottish Academy in 1902, and an associate of the Royal Academy.
