Half length portait of Tanner holding a palette. Despite a handwritten note on verso which suggests the date for this photo as "ca. 1935", the date and photographer are based on this photograph's similarity to another by L. Matthes (see link below), suggesting that the two may have been taken at the same time. This photo should be viewed with photo 2757.
Henry Ossawa Tanner with a palette, circa 1935 / L. Matthes, photographer. Henry Ossawa Tanner papers, 1860s-1978, bulk 1890-1937. Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.
