Tissot immersed himself in London's local scene after moving there in 1871, painting for Vanity Fair and genre paintings with a river Thames backdrop.

Tissot's most famous London picture, Bad News (National Museum of Wales, Cardiff), shows a captain and his girlfriend absorbing the news of his impending departure while a companion prepares tea, and the Pool of London appears in the background. This canvas is a repetition of his left-hand portion of that picture. There is a view of the dense urban landscape beyond that stretch of river here. A pencil study for this work was owned by Tissot's friend Degas.

The puzzle comes in a glossy finish on sturdy chipboard backing and includes a reference print to easily put the puzzle together.


  •   100% chipboard
  •   1014 piece options
  •   Available in vertical or horizontal orientation
  •   Glossy laminated finish
