  1. fantastic paintings. Thanks for sharing.

  2. ‘After the ball’ is entitled in French ‘Une convalescente’ which I reckon is more appropriate, considering Stevens became a realistic painter in Paris. At heart he remained a Belgian although he was known as the Fleming who was more Parisian than most Parisians.

  3. the new “vertical detail” idea is great

  4. oh to see this in person….

  5. Thank you for sharing this! I always enjoyed this style of painting. The textures are so rich and alive.
