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."

Thanks for your comment, Marina. I find these colors so different from my mental image of Tangier. While both have beauty, this version, as you say, feels cool and refreshing.

I like the blurry pastels of Tangiers..A feeling of cool and fresh is everywhere. Thanks.
