He began his career with drawing (strongly inspired by the works of Gustave Doré) then with intaglio engraving and specifically etching in 1882. At the same time he began a career as a director and scenographer, in 1886, of the shadow theater at the Chat Noir cabaret, shows which he improves by creating very innovative colored sets. He was artistic director until the Chat Noir closed in 1897. He then devoted himself exclusively to painting and engraving and established himself in the history of etching, prints, wood engraving, lithography and watercolor. Henri Rivière was born in 1864 in Paris. Through his mother Henriette, he is the nephew of Alphonse-Henri-François Leroux (1831-1895), chicory industrialist in Orchies. His father is a haberdasher and originally from Ax-les-Thermes. The young Rivière was trained in pictorial art in 1880 by the history painter Émile Bin, then delivered illustrations to various newspapers[Which ones?]. In 1882, meeting Rodolphe Salis, he was appointed editorial secretary of the weekly magazine Le Chat noir. In 1886 he became responsible for the Chat noir theater project, which opened its doors at no. 12 rue Victor Massé in December 1887. Renewing shadow theater, he created the decor for the show La Tentation de Saint-Antoine, on a text by Édouard Norès based on the poem by Gustave Flaubert, painted on colored glass plates in the background, while the characters, cut out on a sheet of zinc, appear in the foreground like a shadow projected by a lamp placed under the stage, a little forward, sending its rays sideways. He designed the staging and all the sets until the theater closed in 1897. In addition to La Tentation, he created La Marche à l'étoile, mystery in 10 paintings (1893), to the poems and music of Georges Fragerolle , as well as The Prodigal Son, and a Sainte-Genevieve with the same. Furthermore, from 1885 to 1895, he stayed every summer in Saint-Briac-sur-Mer, while traveling to other places in Brittany, always fascinated by the sea. In 1888, Auguste Lepère created with Félix Bracquemond, Daniel Virginie and Tony Beltrand, the magazine L'Estampe Originale, in order to interest artists and enthusiasts in new processes and trends in engraving, particularly in color. In this period where Japonism had a great influence on the decorative arts, Henri Rivière produced from this date, from 1888 to 1902, The Thirty-six Views of the Eiffel Tower. In 1891, Valloton also renewed wood engraving, with Gauguin or Émile Bernard and Toulouse-Lautrec in turn revolutionized the art of the poster, by drawing the one intended for the famous cabaret opened in 1889, entitled Moulin Rouge - La Goulue, followed by that produced in 1894 by Alfons Mucha for Sarah Bernhardt in the role of Gismonda. He married Eugénie Ley in 1895 and lived at no. 29 boulevard de Clichy in Paris. The couple built a house in Loguivy-de-la-Mer (Ploubazlanec, at the mouth of the Trieux), and this is where the summers were spent from then on until 1913. In 1912, on the death of his brother Jules, he takes care of his nephew Georges Henri Rivière, future museologist. In 1917, Henri Rivière stopped expressing himself through prints, and he used watercolors, already practiced a little since 1890 (he painted around a thousand watercolors). He traveled a lot, spent the Second World War in Buis-les-Baronnies where his wife died in 1943, became blind in 1944, and dictated his memoirs, published in 2004 under the title Les Détours du chemin.
