Arty Tuesday – African American Art – Henry Ossawa Tanner

Mostly Tanner painted religious art but I was really struck by this view

View of The Seine, Looking Toward Notre Dame – Henry Ossawa Tanner (1896)

I was feeling blah about the obvious choices for art for February…love, hearts, romance, etc. And then I thought what about celebrating Black History Month (oh hey, it’s now called African American History Month because that rolls off the tongue).
