Henry Ossawa Tanner, The Thankful Poor.

BALTIMORE, MD.- The Baltimore Museum of Art opens the second exhibit honouring the works of art made by Henry Ossawa Tanner. The show is titled Henry Ossawa Tanner and his Influence in America through November 26. One of the first African-American artists to achieve international acclaim, Henry Ossawa Tanner (1859-1937) welcomed the younger generation into his Parisian studio to give them advice and encourage their careers.

This exhibition explores how Tanner's achievements inspired those artists who returned home to search for their own racial and artistic identities in 20th-century America. The exhibition presents six paintings by Tanner along with approximately 40 paintings, prints, drawings, and photographs by African-American artists from the BMA's collection, including William H. Johnson, Jacob Lawrence, James Van Der Zee, and Hale Woodruff. This is the second in a series of exhibitions that highlight the art, life, and influences of Henry Ossawa Tanner.
