French painter and graphic artist. Early in his career he painted historical costume pieces, but in about 1864 James Tissot turned with great success to scenes of contemporary life, usually involving fashionable women. Following his alleged involvement in the turbulent events of the Paris Commune of 1871, James Tissot took refuge in London, where he lived from 1871 to 1882. James Tissot was just as successful there as he had been in Paris and lived in some style in St John's Wood. There has been a recent upsurge of interest in him, expressed in sale-room prices for his artwork as well as in numerous books and exhibitions devoted to him.
