DESCRIPTION:  Soulacroix’s subjects were taken from the French middle classes. He almost certainly created a special type of soubrette. Soulacroix along with Reggianini and Ricci dwelt lovingly on the richness of texture in the ladies dresses and in the upholstery and draperies. The eloquence of Soulacroix’s pictures results from his dexterity in the rendering of these beautiful interior scenes. His figures enjoy equal status with each part of the painting, measure for measure in treatment and without favouritism.
