Henry Raschen (October 2, 1854* – August 24, 1937) was an artist noted for painting native Americans and landscapes.
Raschen was born in Ogdenburg, Germany in 1854, though some sources say 1856. In 1868, he and his family emigrated to Fort Ross; in 1883 he settled in San Francisco. Raschen had at least one daughter, Mary Raschen (Taylor Coburn).
