Modern Spirit: Henry Ossawa Tanner

Henry Tanner grew up in Philadelphia in the years after the Civil War and went on to become a pioneering African American artist on the world stage. Tanner's story, particularly the intertwining influences of race, religion and modernist experimentation, involves journeying from Philadelphia to rural France, through European Red Cross stations in WWI to the rooftops of the Holy Lands, in order to explore how one artist navigated the technological, political and cultural changes of the 20th century on a global scale. 

Join a representative from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts to learn about this amazing artist from the Philly area as we celebrate Black History Month.
