My Garden in St. John’s Wood

James Tissot French

Not on view

Inspired by a similar structure in the Parc Monceau in Paris, Tissot installed a cast-iron colonnade in his London garden. He employed it frequently as an architectural setting in his paintings and prints. Here, void of figures, it features as the primary motif—a rare pure landscape within Tissot’s oeuvre. The artist included an impression of this etching in his exhibition at the Grosvenor Gallery in 1879, suggesting that he was particularly satisfied with the print and considered it an independent work.
