The first African-American student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts didn’t plan to become a rebel but had just enough African ancestry to provoke the racism of his fellow students.  Frustrated in his career, at age 32 Tanner traveled to Paris to study, and there he found success, crafting a unique style that combined Impressionist touch and academic subject matter.
