Haystacks

  • Henry Ossawa Tanner, Haystacks, ca. 1930, oil on canvas, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Irwin M. Sparr, 1983.95.214

Luce Center Label

The thick, unblended strokes of blues and purples in this image characterize Henry Ossawa Tanner’s later work. He made his reputation from his religious paintings while living in Paris from 1891 until his death in 1937. But like the French painters he admired, Tanner made a point of painting out in the countryside as well.
