Alfred Stevens - In the Studio [1888]

I'm really loving these "behind the scenes" type paintings by Alfred Stevens. They are no less epic, jewel-like than conventional narratives, and probably more interesting than the actual painting on the easel in this picture. I get the rare and peculiar feeling of actually peering back through a window in time, which I don't get as much looking at old black and white photos from the same era.
