Seaside (July: Specimen of a Portrait), 1878. Creator: James Tissot (French, 1836-1902)

Seaside (July: Specimen of a Portrait), 1878. This painting belongs to a series of allegories representing various months of the year. The sitter's relaxed pose and the distant beach suggest a summer vacation by the sea. Bright sunlight is reflected off the sand and filtered through the awning into the room, where it rebounds from the woman's ruffled dress onto her face. The model has been identified as Kathleen Newton, Tissot's British mistress from 1876 until her death in 1882

At the Seashore , 1880. Creator: James Tissot (French, 1836-1902)

At the Seashore , 1880. In spite of the title and nautical background, Tissot in fact used a curved bay window in his London home as the setting for this composition. The model was Kathleen Newton, the young divorcee who, along with her young daughter and son, were the exclusive subjects of Tissot's work from 1876 until her death from tuberculosis in 1882 at the age of 28. The uncertainty of the figure's social position, whose identity as a respectable bourgeois wife is open to question, is underscored by her precarious pose on a window ledge. Newton lived with the artist at his home in St. John's Wood, one of London's new suburbs, perceived by Victorians not as a haven of domesticity, but a confusing and troubling product of the modern age. Like his contemporaries Cassatt and Manet, Tissot was a painter of modern, urban life. He eschewed anecdote, preferring instead to tantalize his viewers with suggestive ambiguity. Like Cassatt, Tissot was also influenced by Japanese prints; for this etching, he adopted the format of the hashira-e, a tall, narrow woodcut used on pillars in Japan
