The first painting of Remember When describes 1920’s fashion. It is called 20’s In Red. It is painted in the way we remember things.
When we reminisce, the memory we recall is that bit blurry but the main points of our memory is clear. In this “memory” the outfits of the people in the painting and the street lamp are clear and give us a bit of an understanding of the era. The red dress the woman is wearing may seem a bit dull but it is actually a crimson red.
