Blaas used a refined and detailed method to construct lively Venetian genre scenes celebrating the joie de vivre within a majestic historical framework, no more so than in Arriving for the Ball, Murano, awash with colour and narrative. Two ladies disembark from their gondola, watched over by two other guests, to be greeted by their expectant host, against the backdrop of the Venice skyline. On the terrace in the background, the evening's festivities are already underway. 

The sumptuous palette in the silks of the dresses and the flesh-tones of the faces reveals the influence of Eugen von Blaas' study of the techniques of Titian and the Venetian masters. Indeed the colourful troubadour costumes and the liveliness of the scene transport the viewer into Venice's Renaissance past, a reminder of the glorious history. Von Blaas' young people 'live their lives within the old walls of a still-important city, and become links in an apparently endless chain of generations who carry on the Venetian traditions and way of life' (Thomas Wassibauer, Eugen von Blaas, Hildesheim, 2005, p. 19).
