OIL PAINTING: In the Louvre, 1883-1885
Following Newton's premature death from tuberculosis in 1882, Tissot returned to Paris, where he first concentrated exclusively on images of women. Among his paintings from this period are a series of 15 paintings titled "La Femme a Paris." - ''In the Louvre'', ''Letter 'L' with Hats'', ''The Political Lady'' and others. Eventually, Tissot became preoccupied with spiritualism and later, expressed a more traditional religious faith. In this period of his life, Tissot devoted most of his energy to creating biblical illustrations.
