Jacques Joseph Tissot built his reputation as a society painter, first in his native France and later in London. Unlike most of the works in this exhibition, which were museum purchases selected by art advisor Gari Melchers, this delicate drawing is one of a small number of artworks that Melchers personally gifted to the museum in 1926, near the end of his life.
