Henry Ossawa Tanner was born in 1859. The Art Institute of Chicago owns his haunting "Self-Portrait" while his American icon, "The Banjo Lesson " is in the collection of the Huntington Memorial Library in Hampton, Virginia. Tanner initially studied with Thomas Eakins at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. In 1891, he moved to Paris where he studied at the Académie Julian. His "Resurrection of Lazarus" won the gold medal at the Salon of 1897 and was later purchased by the French government. Tanner died in Étaples, Normandy, France in 1937.
