James Jacques Tissot (Nantes, 1836 - Chenecey-Buillon, 1902) Draftsman of fashionable high-society women in the late 1800s, James Jacques-Joseph Tissot captured the charmed elegance of his social world by documenting the costumes, decors, and events of the élite. A superb painter, printmaker, and enamelist, Tissot was a student of Hippolyte Flandrin and Louis Lamothe at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, but after fighting in the Franco-Prussian war he moved to London, where a caricature gig at Vanity Fair granted him entry to the upper class. Upon meeting his wife and muse Kathleen Newton, Tissot drastically altered his lifestyle and subject matter and upon her death he returned to Paris with a deep faith and spirituality that was reflected in his work thereafter.
