Henry Ossawa Tanner: Modern Spirit (Exhibition)
Title: Henry Ossawa Tanner: Modern Spirit
Curator: Anna O. Marley, PhD.
Abstract: Henry Ossawa Tanner (1859-1937) grew up in Philadelphia, and decided to become an artist after observing a painter in Fairmount Park, eventually studying from 1879 to 1885 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the presenter of this exhibition. His life’s artistic journey took him to the southern U.S., Paris, Jerusalem, Cairo, and Tangiers. Tanner went on to become a critically acclaimed and prize-winning artist in the United States and France for what contemporary critics called his “modern” and “personal” religious painting. The exhibition and accompanying catalog situate Tanner as an American artist of international stature who reframed genre scenes of African-American life, Orientalist painting, and religious painting, through his own innovative modern painting practices and techniques. The exhibition, at PAFA from January 27 – April 15, 2012, presented more than 100 objects in PAFA’s 7,000-square-foot exhibition space, and then toured to Cincinnati and Houston.
