Drawn to France Session 4 - ONLINE TICKET

Philadelphia painter Henry Ossawa Tanner made waves in the Paris Salon in the 1890s and early twentieth century, especially with his evocative paintings of biblical miracles. While US art critics often commented on Tanner's blackness, French reviewers rarely if ever mentioned it, and the painter called the Paris art world a  perfect race democracy.  This course session presented by Emily C. Burns, associate professor of art history at Auburn University introduces Tanner's outstanding French career by discussing the paintings of his in the exhibition and others from his oeuvre. The discussion contextualizes Tanner alongside other representations by Black US artists who used the opportunity to exhibit in Paris to pursue their artistic interests and to challenging racist stereotypes, especially those who submitted photographs, charts, and dioramas for inclusion in the  Exhibit of American Negroes  at the 1900 Paris World's Fair.
