[Portrait of Henry O. Tanner by Thomas Eakins]
On this day born : Henry O. Tanner.
His repertoire realistic in manner.*
Tired of the bigots who often did harass.
He went overseas for his art props in Paris.*
*"Henry O. Tanner, while studying painting at a studio in the 1890s, observed that Blacks were accepted by their peers and teachers." Aline Voldoire in a review of David McCullough's "The Greater Journey:Americans in Paris"
