Manuel Robbe was highly influenced by the most important French artists of the nineteenth century: Degas, Renoir, Legrand, Chahine and Lautrec, who were his elder contemporaries, all had major impacts on his composition. Robbe delighted in depicting women. He focused on highlighting their individuality and interests, while also celebrating their beauty. His prints chronicled the emerging status of women as decision-makers and connoisseurs, as well as their ability to judge and appreciate art. Throught this lense of respect and appreciation he was able to show their sensuality, sociability, and the ability of the modern women to elegantly enjoy the simple pleasures in life, while also assuming a status and position in the arts once only enjoyed by men.
