The breathtaking portraits of lovely women in fashionable attire created by French artist James Tissot (1836-1902) appear frequently in histories of costume and art. These elegant high society ladies are in historical costumes, holding flowers and fans, riding in boats, enjoying the circus - all from his earlier works.
Tissot received his formal training at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His trule love was Kathleen Newton, whom he met while he later lived in London. Upon her death, Tissot moved back to Paris and became very religious, painting only biblical scenes.
