About the Artwork

Among the first African American artists to receive formal training and earn success, Henry Ossawa Tanner wished to settle in a strong African American community. He lived briefly in Atlanta but moved to France in 1900 in search of relief from the racism he had experienced in the United States. Tanner painted this scene, which has Dutch and old master overtones, in the small fishing village where he settled to enjoy a quiet life of art and travel.
