James Tissot - 'M. and Mme. Mauperin in Egypt' - Etching on Cream Laid Paper
Item Details
Description
James Jacques Joesph Tissot (French, 1836 - 1902), 'M. and Mme. Mauperin in Egypt', 18" x 16.5" Framed Size, 5.75” x 3.75" Plate Size, #195/550, Etching on Cream Laid Paper, signed and dated 1884 by the artist, custom framed in a museum quality solid wood frame with silver details, linen mat with custom trim, ready to hang.

Tissot is famous for his exquisite paintings of beautiful English women and most people think he was English. In fact Jacques-Joseph Tissot was born in Nantes, then a thriving port on the Loire estuary in western France. It is typical of Tissot's art that he wanted to create not merely narraitve compositions in the accepted Victorian style, but works in which the social and even moral commentary was of prime importance. Tissot made a series of ten small illustrations for an edition of the novel Renée Mauperin by Edmond and Jules de Goncourt. First published in 1864, the novel traces the dissolution of a French upper-middle-class family as its spirited youngest daughter, Renée Mauperin, gradually succumbs to tuberculosis. Following his usual studio practice, Tissot derived his compositions from photographs taken expressly for the purpose in the garden of his London home: here, the artist posed as the elderly M. Mauperin while his mistress and favorite model took the part of Renée. The setting represents the famous ruins of the Temple of Isis at Philae, Egypt, undoubtedly compiled by the artist from travel photographs.This artwork was created during the lifetime of the artist.
