About this title


Book by Dewey F. Mosby, Darrel Sewell, Rae Alexander-Minter

From Publishers Weekly:

The reputation of an important, unjustly neglected American artist is restored in this lavish catalogue of a touring exhibition assembled by Sewell, a curator at the Philadelphia Museum of Art; Mosby, director of the Picker Art Gallery at Colgate University; and Alexander-Minter, of the New-York Historical Society. Son of an African Methodist Episcopal minister, Henry Tanner (1859-1937) trained under Thomas Eakins in Philadelphia, then left his native U.S. in 1891 for Paris; a proud, quiet individualist determined to surmount racism, he would spent most of his life in France, serving as a beacon to the Harlem Renaissance. Tanner's sensitive, naturalistic animal studies, modernized reinterpretations of biblical themes, subdued yet powerful WW I scenes and brooding, mystical oriental pictures had an impact that was "by no means race-bound"; his continual experimentation with techniques likewise influenced many artists. Tanner's marvelous visionary paintings of the late 1920s and early '30s are full of foreboding of a world on the brink of self-destruction.
