Art Lecture – James Tissot: Fashion and Faith

Docent talk about the 19th century painter, and his place in the era’s narratives

Docent Maureen O’Brien discusses the Legion of Honor exhibition on celebrated French artist James Tissot (1836-1902), whose ebullient pictures reveal rich and complex commentary on Belle Époque society with great attention to detail, humor and pathos.

Best known for his paintings of fashionable women and society life in the late 19th century, Tissot’s cosmopolitan career defies categorization.

The presentation at the Legion of Honor, which includes approximately 60 paintings in addition to drawings, prints, photographs, and cloisonné enamels, is be the first major international exhibition on Tissot in two decades and the first ever on the West Coast of the United States and offers new scholarship and a critical reassessment of Tissot’s place within 19th century narratives.
