Sitter in 5 portraits
Adrian Maurice Henri was one of the three 'Merseybeat' poets who gained renown when their works were published in The Mersey Sound (1967), which remained a bestseller for many years. He was primarily a painter, however, and he also led the Liverpool Scene rock and poetry band, taught, and wrote children's books and stage and television plays.
