Henry O. Tanner

A tribute to a most distinguished African American (June 21, 1859 - May 25, 1937) artist of the nineteenth century. He was the first black American painter to gain international acclaim. He moved to Paris in 1891 to study, and decided to stay there, being readily accepted in French artistic circles. His painting entitled Daniel In the Lions Den was accepted into the 1896 Salon.
