American, active 1891 or after
Related Content

J. G. Tanner is identified by the inscription on the National Gallery's painting Engagement Between the "Monitor" and "Merrimac" (1953.5.36). No biographical information or additional works by J. G. Tanner have been found, but it is known that the painting is based on a color lithograph issued in 1891. Tanner was active, therefore, in that year or later.
