Notes

Summary:
That simplicity in which he has painted so many other images and things; as the heavy figure of a washerwoman, the faces of the third-class passengers or the grey profiles of the emigrants. The same perfect painting technique (prodigiously expert sign and fluid consistence of the chromatic material) contribute in expressing the genuine liking and the human friendliness that the Artist feels for his creatures. He represents the poor life of those restless years with political disturbances, with corruption, with social inequities; expressing affectionate and disconsolate pity suggested by his direct participation this world's sorrows.
