The Reception by James Tissot


 Tissot was a great French artist.  This painting dates from the 1880's.  Don't you just love her dress!  And that fan!

The people in the background seem to be a right load of old gossips!

The painting is also known as "The Woman with Ambition" – somewhat enigmatic

The original of this work can be found in Buffalo, New York!

  1. Everyone seems to be into gossip. :-) And her dress is awesome.
    If I'm ever in Buffalo I would love to see this painting in person.
