Henry Ossawa Tanner: NYC, LR

Shepherd and Flock, Henry Ossawa Tanner
  • "Shepherd and Flock," Henry Ossawa Tanner

Someone purchased this Henry Ossawa Tanner oil at Sotheby's "American Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture" auction yesterday for $182,500.

I mention it because you don't have to go to Sotheby's in New York City to see what the City Review's Carter Horsley describes as a rare Tanner; you can go to Hearne Fine Art, 1001 Wright Ave., where work by Tanner and other African-American artists is on exhibit in a show called "Pioneers of the Paint: Masters of the 19th Century."

    We don't get to post all the jpegs of artwork on exhibit that come into the office, but they have more allure and tell you more about the work than what I can write about them. Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.
