Our archival reproduction of Tanner's Annunciation will grace your home or office.  As an artist trained in Philadelphia by Thomas Eakins, his work was grounded in realist observation.  A trip to the Holy Land in 1897 had Tanner choose to make the biblical past feel contemporary by portraying Mary as a believable young woman stunned by the apparition that appears before her.

One of the most cherished works of the museum's collection, it was acquired soon after being show in the 1898 Paris Salon.  It was also the first of his works to enter a museum in the United States and the foundation of the Museum's distinguished survey of work by African American artists.

    Tanner - The Annunciation Poster

    Posted by David Mumma on Aug 22nd 2022

    I have always been drawn to this painting in the museum. Mary’s perplexed look is in contrast to the beatific look on her face in most other Annunciation paintings. Tanner certainly is one of America’s treasures. This well-done reproduction is on hard cardboard ready for framing. It came in a flat protective cardboard arriving without any damage. I can now enjoy Tanner’s painting in my own home but will still include the original in every museum visit (and by the way, it is not displayed in the most trafficked area; you have to look for it)
