Henry Ossawa Tanner was the first African American to gain international recognition. Tanner is a realistic painter that is best known for his religious works that he created later in his life. Enjoy a hand painted reproduction of his work in your own home.
Henry Ossawa Tanner was an acclaimed African-American artist, born in Pittsburgh and raised in Philadelphia, PA. He enrolled himself in the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts at an early age, where he was the only black student. He received much instruction and inspiration from painter Thomas Eakins who taught there at the time. As he began to sell work and develop a style, he realized that the racist attitudes of his homeland were causing him difficulty both emotionally and in his career. He moved to Paris where he would live out most of his life, eventually showing work in the 1896 Paris Salon. While his earlier works deal with ordinary people in their natural environments, his later work tends to depict spiritual and biblical themes. He was made a member of the French Legion of Honor in 1923 and died in Paris in 1937.
I recently discovered this company and have already purchased several pieces with the intent of buying more in the near future. Having been a manager of a fine art gallery, I know exceptional artwork when I see it and overstockArt has beautiful offerings.
I've purchased quite a few reproductions and always had great pieces arrive. This last purchase however there was ever so slight damage to the top of the frame. I called and it was picked up by FedEx the next day. Very kind, professional, and easy process. Thank you, I'll continue to order my art through you folks!
We ordered the Luxury Line version of Van Gogh's Cafe Terrace and we love it! It's well done, retaining the details of the original but with a little added flair from the gold paint on the stars and windows. If I didn't know better, I would swear this painting adds light to our room at night. I'm very happy with this purchase!
I love overstockArt. I have purchased 5 paintings from them over the years and love them all. Beautiful work, great prices, and quality customer service.
The paintings I received were exceptional in quality and the service staff were more than helpful with helping me arrange my orders. Will buy more in the future!
I ordered this painting to hang above the bed in the bedroom. It is more gorgeous than on the screen. The gold and the colors are so vibrant, the passion of this painting is amazing. Absolutely love my purchase. Arrived quickly and nicely packed with no damage. Very happy with my purchase!
The quality of the piece we ordered was nothing short of perfect, it is perfect quality and will be the center of our dining room for years to come!
Gorgeous painting. Lots of texture. Gold foil on the luxury line adds a great effect. Highly recommended.
This is outstanding. Not only does it have the gorgeous gold foiled accents, but the texture and amount of paint on the canvas is absolutely superb. Brush strokes look amazing, colors are vivid. This is a real treat in my kitchen area. Falling in love with each order I make, but this one has really caught my attention.
This looks gorgeous in our home. Goes well in every room we tested it in.
