Ramon Casas Paints a Crowd

Catalonian artist Ramon Casas (1866-1932), Wikipedia entry here, was skilled at depicting people.  This was even the case with his crowd-scene paintings where hundreds of folks were shown.

One such painting is Corpus. Salida de la precesión de la iglesia de Santa María del Mar, a 1898 Barcelona scene.

In 2010 I visited Barcelona's Museo Nacional d'Art de Catalunya and took two detail photos of that work.  Perhaps artists and others reading this post might find Casas' treatment of individuals at small scale interesting.
