OIL PAINTING: Young Lady Holding Japanese Objects, 1865
After the 1860s Tissot became something of a traveller, visiting Italy, and in 1862 London. He was fascinated by the japanese culture. In 1864 Tissot exhibited at the Royal Academy for the first time, suggesting that he realised the potential of London as a source of wealthy patrons. Tissot began to concentrate on contemporary scenes at this time.
