Artists and their muses: James Tissot

James Tissot, his gorgeous shades of gowns and love for Kathleen Newton.

It is possible to feel life going on in his paintings, hear the gowns moving, see pale skin sparkle. Very realistc, illustrative, almost drawing a storyline.

Althought, fashion of 19th century seventies and eighties is not my favourite; and this period has a lot less poetic spirit than previous decades. It is also not that decadent and seductive as the oncoming times of 1900.

Lovely Vicomtesse de Montmorand
most famous Girl in a Boat

And... a muse: Kathleen Newton

I'm not here to tell you her story. Let image speak for itself.
