From the
"The blue tones and loose brushwork of this painting typify Henry Ossawa Tanner's most successful experiments with color composition and application of paint. Tanner, an African American artist, traveled to the Mediterranean region four times, and these trips had a profound effect on his style and subject matter. During a 1912 trip to Tangier, Morocco, Tanner became fascinated with this gateway—the entrance to the casbah, or the historic city area and fortress—and he proceeded to paint the gateway from many perspectives and vantage points."

Isaly2, thanks for your kind words. I love the radiance Henry Tanner projects here, and like you, find this gateway enticing. Best wishes for your day as well!


Thank you Carol for this beautiful painting by Henry Tanner. I love the soft pastel colors in this. I would love to be able to walk through this gateway into the city. Hope you have a great day my friend....


I'm so glad you like this, Daylight4. I believe it was Judyredhorn's posts that introduced me to him via Jigidi. I've fallen in love with his work.

Thank you for introducing me to this artist. What a brilliant light touch he has!
