The Banjo Lesson

As a teenager on a walk, Henry Ossawa Tanner observed a landscape painter and decided then and there to be an artist – despite his color blindness. He was the first full-time black student to enroll in the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. The Banjo Lesson is among Tanner’s most recognizable paintings.
