James Tissot - The Ladies of the Cars

[Ces Dames des Chars]
oil on canvas
The scene was based on the Hippodrome de l'Alma (opened in 1877) where Roman chariot races were staged.

this one is unusual...
for me "Victorian Paintings" were always connected with insides, or gardens, beautiful views and moody women...
and here there's something more.
circumstances are different.

i know i like it very much.
