Shipping calculated at checkout.
This work was fashioned brilliantly with perfect use of light and dark contrasts. This genre
painting depicts the men and boys at task; the artist captured a moment in time with 
honor and grace. The muscled plow horses are skillfully developed as they are directed; 
the artist works effortlessly, his keen appreciation for his subjects reflects a sensitive, 
superbly balanced work of art. 
"Plowing was an art form requiring skills, just as any other expression of art. The men 
found it relaxing and enjoyable, and - comes at a time of year when the weather and 
changing seasons make the job a pleasure." cc Rural Heritage.
