Ramon Casas was interested in women’s fashion and this is reflected in his portraits of females throughout his career. The black and red mantilla shawl, which he used on various occasions as a rich accessory and feature garment, over a detailed green dress. Rosarito, in which he depicts his muse Júlia, shows a modern and confident woman who looks straight at the viewer. However, he conveys to us the influence and vision of Goya’s aristocratic portraits, and the continuity of his mastery of great painting.
