It is possible to feel life going on in his paintings, hear the gowns moving, see pale skin sparkle. Very realistc, illustrative, almost drawing a storyline.
Althought, fashion of 19th century seventies and eighties is not my favourite; and this period has a lot less poetic spirit than previous decades. It is also not that decadent and seductive as the oncoming times of 1900.
