How do you fabrics : Franz Xaver Winterhalter (20 April 1805 – 8 July 1873)

German painter and lithographer, known for his portraits of royalty in the mid-nineteenth century. He was a virtuoso in the art of conveying the texture of fabrics, furs and jewellery, to which he paid no less attention than to the face. He painted very rapidly and very fluently, designing most of his compositions directly in the canvas. His portraits are elegant, refined, lifelike, and pleasantly idealized.
