Rena Tobey – NY Jewish Museum Exhibitions

Tissot and the Bible

A turn to deep reflection and spirituality marked the last 20 years of Tissot’s life!

In this talk, Rena Tobey will take  a close look at how Tissot used the dynamics of illustration to tell stories through the art. The work is placed in the context of his career and in the context of changing technology that made illustration possible.

He made one of many trips to Palestine in 1896 to draw inspiration, observing the landscape where the biblical stories took place and producing what he felt were historically accurate illustrations.
