James Tissot and his "Parisiennes"
James Tissot was the fashionable artist from 1850 to 1902. We find the importance of his art: portraits of aristocrats of the time alongside scenes of Victorian life and images of "Parisiennes". His talent is recognized, his sense of detail pushes the critic John Ruskin to qualify his paintings as “colored photographs”.
