A startling child's face, full of the wisdom of the ages, gazes unwaveringly, immortalized on canvas by Robert Henri (1865-1929). She is Kathleen (cover ), Kathleen Gallagher of Ireland's Achill Island. Henri's portraits of the island's children emerge as some of his most soulful work during a long and prestigious career. Henri's life, beginning with his birth—as Robert Henry Cozad—in Cincinnati, Ohio, and his subsequent frequent moves with his family, reads like a twisted road map full of intrigue. His beloved father, gambler and entrepreneur John Jackson Cozad, shot and killed a man when Robert was 17 and the Cozad family fled: they assumed false names and assigned Robert and older brother John new identities as adopted sons.
