    The experiences and influences of the Ville Lumière are evident in the painting of Ramon Casas from the eighties of the 19th century and represented a pictorial renewal in the Catalan and Spanish artistic scene thanks to his regular exhibitions at the Sala Parés in Barcelona. This renovation began to be known as "the gray revolution" due to the use of a color palette based on whites, blacks and grays, typical of the Parisian atmosphere and the painting of authors who influenced it, such as James Whistler.
    However, in this case, Casas draws on the color tradition of the first avant-garde and transfers it to this very personal painting. This portrait of his sister Elisa denotes this taste for a more subtle color palette, but at the same time full of vigor and light.
