The exhibition James Tissot at Chiostro del Bramante in Rome is the first exhibition in Italy of the work of the French painter James Tissot (1836-1902), famous for his scenes from contemporary life, especially of fashionably dressed women.

On display are 80 works coming from museums like the Tate in London and the Petit Palais and Museo d’Orsay in Paris. The exhibition is organised into nine thematic sections, covering the life and artistic development of Tissot, from his early start in Paris to his time in London, and tracing the artists that influenced his work.
