A writer with a bachelor’s degree in Art History and English Literature from Hamilton College in Clinton, New York, Lucy Paquette studied with the British and European Studies Group, London (B.E.S.G.L.), 9 York Terrace East.  After beginning her career in marketing and copywriting in Washington, D.C., she became a freelance writer for publications including Signature, a publication of the Women’s National Book Association, and Maquette, the journal of the International Sculpture Center.

Using dozens of contemporary sources, the author has recreated Tissot’s life through his friendships, residences and letters, reviews and other published documents to shed light on a fascinating but little-known figure embroiled in the birth of Impressionism and modern art.
