Jean-Baptiste-Ange Tissier (born in Paris March 6, 1814 - died in Nice April 4, 1876) is a French painter of the nineteenth century. Student of Ary Scheffer and Paul Delaroche, Tissier regularly exhibits at the Salon between 1838 and 1875. Gifted with a great talent as a portraitist (he creates the Portrait of Emir Abd-el-Kader, National Museum of the Palace of Versailles) , he became one of the official painters of the Second Empire, specializing in the scenes that mark the great initiatives of Napoleon III, for example The liberation of Abd-el-Kader decided by the emperor (Salon of 1861 and World Expo of 1867), or his action of builder (The architect Visconti presents to Napoleon III and the Empress the plans of completion of the Louvre, Versailles, National Museum of the Castle). These portraits are of an astonishing finesse of realization, dealing with the most subtle variations of the colors and the materials such as the brilliance of silks, revealing the personalities of its models with exactitude
