Two paintings by Henry Ossawa Tanner in the Dallas Museum of Art’s small but rich show on the artist — fresh from months of painstaking conservation treatment — offer a glimpse into the world of sophisticated expatriate Americans in Paris in the years around 1900.

The exhibit shows the importance of the new, and well-endowed Art Bridges Foundation, which funded the conservation and study of the paintings on view. The foundation’s mission is to promote American art in museums throughout the United States.
