Stevens’ painting of Winter highlights his synthesis of model, colouring, dress and background which work to create an overall mood.
From 1855 onwards, Stevens gained an increasing Japanese art, artists and artistic practice, leading him to create works with greater emphasis on pattern and design. His particular talent for the accurate and nuanced depiction of dress fabric was also inspired by Dutch masters of the Golden age such as Vermeer. The woman’s costume is treated with particular attention to the difference of fabrics, layers, and surface textures.
