Advent Art, Henry Ossawa Tanner: The Annunciation

Another one of my favorite paintings. Henry Ossawa Tanner, The Annunciation (1898), at The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
The Annunciation
Painted in France by Tanner, an African-American painter. Tanner also spent some time in the Middle East to background this and other paintings with biblical themes. I may get some more of them up ere Christmas season is over. This one is worth clicking twice to enlarge.

  1. The detail in that painting is amazing! I cannot imagine the work involved in all of the fabric. Or the shading.
