Art Talk with Russ Ramsey
Along with stories, music, and community, art is at the core of the Rabbit Room's mission and purview. For North Wind Manor Opening Week, we've invited pastor, author, and art enthusiast Russ Ramsey to speak about the work of American painter Henry Ossawa Tanner.
Russ is a pastor and author living in Nashville, Tennessee. His books include Struck: One Christian’s Reflections on Encountering Death (IVP, 2017), and the Retelling the Story Series, featuring The Advent of the Lamb of God (IVP, 2018). His personal mission is to communicate the truths of Scripture in accessible ways to people in process. Aside from his books, Russ has written for The Rabbit Room, She Reads Truth, The Gospel Coalition, Crossway, The Art House, Lifeway, Parenting Teens, Dec 2015, The Blazing Center, and To Write Love On Her Arms, among other blogs, podcasts, and printed media.
Henry Ossawa Tanner was an American artist known for his depictions of biblical themes, and was also the first African-American painter to gain international acclaim. Although his early work often depicted the lives of African-Americans, he later moved on to biblical imagery, for which he started receiving acclaim in Europe and later in the United States. Daniel in the Lions' Den received an honorable mention at the 1894 Paris Salon, and The Raising of Lazarus won a medal at the 1897 Paris Salon and was later purchased by the French government. After his death on May 25, 1937, Tanner’s art became less renowned until the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. exhibited several of his works in 1969, the first major solo exhibition of a black artist in the United States.
