Cave Dwellers, Dieppe

Job Nixon 1891 - 1938


A row of lean-to dwellings at the foot of a sheer rock face. The rock face is to the left. There are three pigs feeding from a trough at the left centre foreground. An elderly woman is standing beside the pigs, facing the viewer. She is slightly stooped and is holding a bucket. Goats and chickens can be seen outside the shacks. A man stripped to the waist can be seen at the right midground. A pathway to the right leads up between the rocks to the upper background. Doorways in the rock face to the left can be seen at the upper centre background.
