Jacques Joseph Tissot

Jacques Joseph Tissot (15 October 1836 – 8 August 1902), Anglicized as James Tissot, was a French painter and illustrator. He was a successful painter of Paris society before moving to London in 1871. He became famous as a genre painter of fashionably dressed women shown in various scenes of everyday life. He also painted scenes and characters from the Bible.
Jacques Tissot was born in the port town of Nantes, France and spent his early childhood there. His father, Marcel Théodore Tissot, was a successful drapery merchant. His mother, Marie Durand, assisted her husband in the family business and designed hats. A devout Catholic, Tissot's mother instilled pious devotion in the future artist from a very young age. Tissot's youth spent in Nantes likely contributed to his frequent depiction of shipping vessels and boats in his later works. The involvement of his parents in the fashion industry is believed to have been an influence on his painting style, as he depicted women's clothing in fine detail. By the time Tissot was 17, he knew he wanted to pursue painting as a career. His father opposed this, preferring his son to follow a business profession, but the young Tissot gained his mother's support for his chosen vocation. Around this time, he began using the given name of James. By 1854 he was commonly known as James Tissot; he may have adopted it because of his increasing interest in everything English.

NINETEEN ANCIENT POEMS
The second poem
Qu Yuan
Zelena, greener
grass on the river bank.
Thick, dense foliage
willow branches covered in the garden.

k2.jpg


Good, Good
a woman in the house at the top -
So nice and bright -
at the open window.

k3.jpg


Affectionate, gentle and pure
light layer of white and blush.
And long and thin
fingers lovely white hands.

k4.jpg


The one in the young days
for gay sang houses
Referring now
in the one that is waiting for her husband from wandering.

k5.jpg


From someone else's hand
He did not return to her,
And let B
it is very difficult to keep one.

The Autumn of Roses

How many times I tell myself that relations-too complicated mechanism to keep on good intentions alone.

Some connections and wiring constantly the junk that are torn ... We need to make the connection constantly, constantly.

My heart is bursting with tenderness and sadness. Neither one nor the other is no longer fatally ...
