"Tissot and the Victorian Woman"
2002-09-27 until 2003-02-02
Art Gallery of Ontario
Toronto, ON, CA

This exhibition marks the 100th anniversary of the death of the French artist James Tissot. In the context of engravings by contemporary English printmakers, about 40 etchings and mezzotints reveal Tissot's interpretation of Victorian femininity. September 27, 2002 to February 2, 2003 The Gallery is grateful to Allan and Sondra Gotlieb for the donation in 1994-5 of their Tissot print collection - more than 160 etchings and mezzotints.

Tissot began etching in 1860 with the art form's popular revival, but then stopped after 1861 and did not etch again until 1875. Between 1875 and 1885, Tissot produced his most significant etchings. In 1885, Tissot began work on the Bible illustrations that occupied his last years. About 1895, Tissot made his last print, attempting the difficult process of color etching at which Mary Cassatt was so successful.
