A specially commissioned oil painting, interpreting On The Thames by James Tissot, also known as Return from Henley, circa 1874.

Jacques Joseph Tissot was born in 1836 and became known as James Tissot by 1854. He was a successful painter and illustrator of Paris society before moving to London in 1871, arriving with established social and artistic connections and took a cartooning job for Vanity Fair. Tissot quickly developed his reputation as a painter of elegantly dressed women shown in scenes of fashionable life. Tissot also painted a number of Thames river scenes, thought to be influenced by his friend, American born artist Whistler.

The canvas has been treated with ageing varnish, then stretched and mounted in a metal leaf 4" hand-made frame.
