Thanks so much for this video!! I bought the book on Tissot, the one produced this year by the Brooklyn Museum to coincide with their major exhibition of his 350 watercolours on the Life of Christ just a few weeks ago from Amazon. It is a beautiful and inspiring set of works.
I also have used some of the Tissot images throughout Lent. there is soemthing about them that really chokes me.
I will put a link on my blog to you and put this video on as well.
Thank you again and many belssings to you for Holy Week And Easter !!
