TASSIN, Charles Stanislas (tas-sang), South American artist, born in Berbice, Guiana, in 1751; died in Paris in October, 1812. He studied with Watteau, and became one of his best pupils. In 1773 he exhibited a "Christ in the Cradle," which attracted much attention, and procured for the artist a prize of 8600 from Louis XV. Later he produced "Venus and Cupid" (1777) ; several pastoral pictures ; "A Runaway Match" (1784) ; " Over the Wall" (1786) ; " Peasants Dancing" (1788); "Marchioness as Shepherdess" (1790), and other pictures; and obtained the title of royal painter. He also decorated several panels in the castles of Trianon, Sceaux, and Luciennes, painted portraits of Madame du Barry, Duke de la Vauguyon, Admiral d'Estaing, Bailly de Suffren, and Duchess Jules and Countess Diane de Polignac. In 1791 he went to England and executed portraits of William Pitt, Charles James Fox, and Edmund Burke, and, having inherited a large estate in Guiana, returned to his native land in 1795, remaining there till the peace of Amiens, when he returned to Paris in 1802. His later works include "Sunset in Guiana" (1799); "Fish-Vender at Berbice" (1802) ; " A Creole" (1803); and "Love Victorious" (1805).
