In the 1880s Toorop shared with James Ensor and other Brussels artists an interest in Neo-Impressionism. The work he painted, exhibited with Les Vingt, used muted tonal harmonies influenced by Whistler, as well as a systematic division of brushwork and a Pointillist use of colour dots derived from the Neo-Impressionists.
