More than 100 works, from paintings to sculpture, are featured in this major exhibition devoted to the acclaimed artist Henry Ossawa Tanner (1859–1937). Organized by the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, this exhibition is the second stop on a three-city tour. The exhibition follows Tanner’s personal journey: as a young African American in Philadelphia in the years after the Civil War; his success as an American expatriate artist at the turn of the 20th century; leader of an artist’s colony in rural France; contributions in aid of American servicemen to the efforts of the Red Cross during WWI. Landscapes, portraits and luminous street scenes from his visits to the Holy Land and Near East are included. More info: www.cincinnatiartmuseum.org.
