James Tissot - En Plein Soleil [c.1881] on Flickr.This group portrait includes the artist’s companion, Kathleen Newton, at left, her children, Cecil George Newton and Muriel Mary Violet Newton, and two unidentified figures, who may be Kathleen’s elder sister, Mary Hervey, and one of her daughters, Isabelle or Lilian. The setting appears to be Tissot’s garden in St. John’s Wood, London. Based on at least one photograph taken by Tissot, this composition was originally known only by means of the artist’s etching after the painting.
