"When I went to Europe to study, one of the first things I did was look up Henry O. Tanner. At that time he was living outside of Paris, so I took a train to Etaples on the English Channel where he lived, and finally found him there in his studio. We spent a day together...Tanner was a real inspiration." ~ Hale Woodruff
