Tissot's Kathleen Newton
// lines and colors :: a blog about drawing, painting, illustration, comics, concept art and other visual arts
In 1875, French painter and printmaker James Jacques-Joseph Tissot met divorcee Kathleen Newton, and fell for her head-over-brushes.
They had a scant seven years together before he was devastated by her death from tuberculosis in 1882.
During that time, which Tissot described as the happiest in his life, he painted and drew Newton and her children numerous times.
