An early work, entitled “Les dames seules” or “Single Women” is particularly fascinating as it depicts a dapper figure in a dark morning coat, waistcoat, starched collar and tie glancing towards a demure feminine figure (Conway Morris). Lacking the usual ambiguity, this image clearly signifies a cross-gendering subculture which Barbier is privy to.
