"Thanks to art, instead of seeing a single world, our own, we see it multiply until we have before us as many worlds as there are original artists."

The Good Life
Holiday (The Picnic), c. 1876 by James Tissot, Tate Gallery London.
Painted in the backyard of his London home, Tissot's artwork often depicts beautiful women in fashionable clothes and the men who admire them. For a while his work was disregarded as frivolous, but his had a revival as his skill and technique became appreciated once again.
