“A Passing Storm” (c. 1876) depicts realism

“A Passing Storm” (c. 1876) by French painter James Tissot (1836-1902) shows a room overlooking the seaside town of Ramsgate, one of the great English resorts of the 19th century. Tissot’s interior view offers a glimpse of boats in the background behind a lady and her tea-set. The composition with figures, architecture and furniture exemplifies his unique take on realism. The setting of “A Passing Storm” is featured in three other versions by the artist.
