Henry Ossawa Tanner: The Annunciation, 1898


The Annunciaton, 1898, oil on canvas.  Henry Ossawa Tanner, 1859-1937, American.  Philadelphia Museum of Art


The first African American to gain international acclaim as an artist, Tanner studied first at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia; and was a student of the celebrated Thomas Eakins who also painted his student’s portrait.  He was also among the many artists to flee the racism of his native country: he studied and lived in France for many years and died in Paris.
