James Tissot - The Garden Bench

[Le Banc de Jardin]
c. 1882
oil on canvas
Private Collection
Showing Kathleen Newton and her children, Cecil George and Violet and her niece Lilian Hervey, probably based on photographs and sketches as they were frequent visitors to his house in Grove End Road. The picture was exhibited but the artist kept it as a memorial (she died in 1882) until his death.
