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 have just ordered my fourth piece from overstockart.com and each piece was beautiful. The service department goes overboard to make sure that I was happy with my Art and the price, to me, is a steal. I just moved into a new home and their art stands with the best of the original art that I have. I would highly recommend them. If you are not happy; they will make it right.
I have recently purchased 2 pieces of art, "Flaming June" and "the Fisherman and the Siren" from OverstockArt and I could not be happier. I felt the prices was very fair, the shipping was perfect and the quality of the paintings left me speechless. Such a good experience that it pushes me to acquire more art from you. Thank you, OverstockArt!
I bought a Van Gogh, Hopper, and Monet as gifts and they all turned out beautifully. I was anxious that the quality would be not be as promised, but the paintings I received were very similar to the images presented on the website. I would recommend this service.
The product far exceeds my expectations. It's beautiful. The shipping was prompt and the item even though large was wrapped very tightly to avoid damage. I'm thrilled and will be purchasing again. The color in painting is vivid and beautiful. Looks like the artist came to my home and painted it. Thank you OverstockArt
"Rapture of Psyche" was well-done; it came framed and ready to hang for a very reasonable price!
Had two important questions arrive after I placed the order. Both questions were answered within 15 minutes of sending the email. I believe the Customer Service department is top notch, as is the site with Pictures, Dimensions, and options...
I recently made a purchase and forgot to submit the coupon. I called and was amazed to have the phone answered after the second ring--- by a human!! A very pleasant and extremely helpful human! He was great!!! And made my shopping experience with overstockArt a very pleasing experience!
I've purchased two pieces for my office so far and am about to receive my third. Both pieces were of good quality. They are light weight, well framed, and appealing on the wall. I look forward to doing business with OverstockArt in the future.
Stunning Art for a great price! Arrived fast, well wrapped and amazing customer service. I am so impressed by this that I might have to look for my other favorite paintings ;)
I ordered two framed pieces and they arrived quickly and were more beautiful than I imagined they would be. There were of high quality too. Frames are terrific!! I will be a return customer!!
