Banjo Lesson

Banjo Lesson is an artwork portraying an elder teaching a boy how to play a banjo. This is a moving and memorable scene. This was painted by Henry Ossawa Tanner, which also painted more scenes from everyday life. In this painting, Tanner showed a positive and dignified image of Africans Americans. In 1895, believing he could not fulfill his artistic aspirations in America, Tanner settled in Paris. There, he focused on religious paintings.
