Tour of the James Tissot Exhibit

“October” (1877) by James Tissot
Tour of the James Tissot Exhibit with Kent Holubar and Deb Hunt
Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020 | 1-3 pm
Legion of Honor

The Alumni Board is excited to offer a special pop-event opportunity: a docent-led tour of the stunning James Tissot exhibit, “Fashion and Faith,” with an expert pre-tour talk with European history teacher Kent Holubar and retired art history teacher/librarian Deb Hunt. James Tissot is probably one of the most successful artists of his time that most people don’t recognize. Both Deb and Kent have knowledge of the historical context in which Tissot painted and insights into his large body of work, ranging in style from the Pre-Raphaelite to Impressionism.  We’ll follow the tour with some refreshments and discussion in the museum café. Tickets for the event are $30, and space is limited.
