Audrey Hepburn in the gardens at Cinecittà film studios in 1958, with actor Peter Finch, her co-star in The Nun’s Story.
Reading the News (1874). James Tissot (French, 1836-1902). Oil on canvas.
Tissot’s pictures are distinguished most obviously by his love of painting women’s costumes: indeed, his work—which has a fashion-plate elegance and a chocolate-box charm— has probably been more often reproduced in works on the history of costume than on the history of painting.
