Musée d’Orsay is offering a unique exhibition centered on James Tissot. His painting style may at times be too well polished, but conceals incredible compositions and framing, worthy of the best impressionists.
At the end of the 1850s, Tissot forged a reputation in Paris, he was keen on Japanese art from which he was inspired for his paintings. His relationships with the most influential circles are also a source of inspiration. In the 1870s, he moved to London, a city in which he continued to rub shoulders with high society.
