About

Spinning by the Firelight was Tanner’s vision of the childhood of his family friend George Washington Gray. Gray was an abolitionist minister, educator, and social reformer that Tanner stayed with when he briefly returned to the United States in 1893. The painting depicts an intimate domestic scene. The mother is sitting by her spinning wheel working as her husband watches her from the corner of the room. The young boy, George Washington Gray, is shown sitting by the fireplace stacking firewood. The small and bare domestic interior points to Gray’s humble childhood. The fire from the fireplace provides a light source to an otherwise cold setting indicated by the grey color palette of the rest of the room. Similar to his other paintings, Tanner takes inspiration from impressionism to capture the scene through small distinct brushstrokes and emphasizes the reflection of light around the room.

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free mat board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.

Please note that the images of frames displayed here are meant to be representative of those used in our custom-framed products, but may not exactly match the ones in the actual products
