Sprout Picking, Monmouthshire

Evelyn Mary Dunbar 18/12/1906 - 1960

Summary

A view along rows of sprouts in large field, with some women farmers bent over picking them. All the women are wearing green and pointed hats. There are greenhouses visible in the background to the left, and the field is cordoned off by a hedge running along the middle of the painting. There is a farmhouse to right, and hills in distance behind, both of which are painted in soft browns to give the illusion of their distance. The canvas peering through on the sketchily painted sky contrasts with the more detailed figures in the foreground.
