Flower Vendor



Chrysanthemums, c, 1875 by James Tissot, Private collection.

By the time this work was painted Tissot was well established in his career and in work takes a rare look at a common flower vendor rather than the young fashionable women of the increasingly prominent upper-middle class.

I'm so glad you chose to give a selection of this artist. I've never studied him before - and I feel I've really missed something. His warm, yet vibrant colors combine with the dark contrast and leaves me feeling homey and comfy. I think I have seen his art before, but don't remember where - maybe my aunts' home. She had many paintings along the same vein. Again, thank you for bringing him to my attention.
