James Tissot (15 Oct 1836 – 8 Aug 1902) was a French artist who is best known for his 365 gouache illustrations of the life of Christ. This series met critical acclaim in Paris, London, and New York and brought him a high level of fame and wealth.
“Christ Ascends” is a digitally remastered print from that series. The original was very small, not more than 12 inches tall. We offer a single option of a print of similar size: 8×12″.
(This painting was also integrated into the design of a book by J Washburn called Holy Alchemy, and it’s through that channel that we acquired it.)
