James Tissot: The Life of Christ
- $9.85 for Members
In conjunction with the exhibition, this handsome catalogue offers the first comprehensive and critical examination of French painter James Tissot's series of 350 watercolors depicting the Gospels. The entire set of exquisite watercolors entered the Brooklyn Museum's collection by public subscription in 1899. After many visits to the Holy Land, Tissot dedicated himself to a ten-year project of illustrating the life of Christ as told in the New Testament.
