Something I forgot

… File:Henry Ossawa Tanner - The Annunciation.jpg - Wikimedia Commons.

I meant to post this on Sunday, the anniversary of Tanner’s birth. He attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and studied with Thomas Eakins, who painted Tanner’s portrait. His painting of the Annunciation, which is at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, I have loved since first saw it, which was a long time ago. It is not just a painting of a religious subject. It is a religious painting.
