Christ and His Mother Studying the Scriptures by Henry Ossawa Tanner
Christ and His Mother Studying the Scriptures, Henry Ossawa Tanner, c. 1909, Dallas Museum of Art.

Henry Ossawa Tanner was a talented artist who made beautiful religious and genre paintings in the mid-19th and early-20th centuries. He was also the first African-American to become internationally successful as an artist. I just love Tanner’s work.
