The Milliner Fortune Teller by Harry Herman Roseland

Harry Herman Roseland (1867—1950) was an American painter of the early 20th century and he is considered as the most significant painter of American cartomancy.

He was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1866 and he passed there his whole life. He never travelled to Europe as others artists of his time and he was largely self taught.

He was a member of the Brooklyn Art Club; the Brooklyn Painters and Sculptor’s Association and the Brooklyn Society of Painters.

The realistic scenes of Afro Americans workers and fortune tellers women were his favorite themes.
