Biography:
Against his religious parents’ wishes, Henry Ossawa Tanner pursued a career in art, enrolling at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. There he studied under Thomas Eakins who first introduced him to photography. In an effort to make a living, Tanner moved to Atlanta and set up a photographic studio that ended in failure. After a brief period as an art teacher, Tanner moved to Paris and studied at the Academie Julien. He traveled across the Middle East and gathered source material to create his religious paintings. Tanner served in World War I as a member of the Red Cross and became a Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur.
