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.
Quality customer service is key to customer satisfaction. Overstock.art is a shining example of this. They resolved my issue beyond what I expected and I am a very happy customer. My painting is beyond beautiful, too! I'll order from them again!
We received two of the three pieces and are truly impressed. The frames are beautiful and well-made. We had an issue with a coupon and overstockArt.com was accommodating and resolved the matter immediately. We look forward to receiving our third piece and will definitely use this website in the future!
LOVE overstockArt! They have TONS of choices in artwork and frames, they are fast, they are beautiful! I only wish I'd discovered them SOONER! You will not be disappointed!
Art was delivered faster than expected. The paintings and frames were just as described on the website. They were packaged well for shipping. Awesome Job! Very nice quality.
The artwork by Modigliani, Manet and Munch looked fantastic. Very happy customer. Thank you so much.
I have bought several works that were reproduced by overstockArt and was happy with all of them. The Klimts were amazing in detail and texture. They all came with the proper hanging screws, as I got them all pre-framed. For quality at a reasonable price overstockArt is the way to go!
I don't normally buy prints but took a chance on this and I absolutely LOVE it! It's hanging in an area filled with oil paintings and it still stands out as a star!
Highly recommend this if you are looking for something fun and cheerful to brighten up a space. I just love it!
I have purchased 3 handmade oil paintings from overstockArt and have had extremely positive results with each transaction. The products are breathtakingly gorgeous and they are packaged with a high attention to detail so as to not be ruined during and upon transit. The customer service is very quick to respond to questions and problems with orders via internet.
We own 5 paintings, Monets, Klimts...They are all very well done, just beautiful. Also the people who work at overstockArt.com are just terrific to deal with. It's so nice to talk to someone who is pleasant and knows what they are doing!
