OP ACROSS CONTINENTS AND CULTURES: THE ART AND LIFE OF HENRY OSSAWA TANNER. Dewey F. Mosby. Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, 1995. Distributed by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 118 pp. with 76 ills. (56 col.). 27 x 24 cm. LC 95-4078 ISBN 0942614240 In English.
Surveying the achievements of an acclaimed African American artist who spent much of his career in France, this catalogue documents an exhibition of 52 paintings and eight drawings by Tanner (1859-1937) that include landscapes, portraits and depictions of genre and biblical scenes. A detailed essay explores the impact of racial issues on Tanner's oeuvre while chronicling his artistic evolution from his early studies with Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and his association with the Pont Aven circle in the 1890s to his development of an individualistic Symbolist style in the early 1900s.
