Gathering Stones
The painting shows three women clearing a field of stones prior to ploughing and planting of crops. The women are bent over in this backbreaking work, with a focused concentration on their immense task. The vast landscape stretches out beyond the women in to the background. One of the women in the foreground carries a basket as she bends over double. Another woman walks with a cane, away from the viewer. A great sense of monotony is reflected in the flat landscape and the sombre colours used by the artist. The only colour to stand out is the red scarf of one figure and the rich blue skirt of another.
