Hennings’ daughter Helen wrote, “I can remember from my own very early childhood hearing the story of Dad’s visit to the Art Institute when he was about thirteen. So awed and impressed was he by what he saw there that he decided then that he would make art his life’s work.”

In Taos: A Painter’s Dream, Patricia Janis Broder wrote, “The paintings of E. Martin Hennings are glowing tapestries that celebrate the pageantry and beauty of the people and landscape of northern New Mexico. In them the land itself—the canyons, mountains, streams, and forests—suggests the color and romance of a Renaissance weaving. Against this richly hued background, the Indian people of the Taos Pueblo, the Spanish- American people of the neighboring mountain villages, and the Anglos living and working in New Mexico are the protagonists of a historic tableau.”
