Course Participant

Jacques Joseph Tissot (1836-1902), as he was known before his name was anglicised to James, was a French artist whose works became synonymous with the society and culture of Paris and, subsequently, London. Tissot’s portrayal of elegantly dressed women shown in scenes of fashionable life and of biblical scenes, which reflect his Catholicism, create an eclectic mix of charming, realistic and spiritual images.
