I found this painting very interesting for a few reasons. One being that it appears to be women that are working in the field picking grain and in the distance you can see the men with what looks like cattle. This is a picture that shows the movement of realism because back in that time of 1850s this is how people worked the land they didn't have all the machines we have today. Also back in that time the upper class hired lower class people to work their land for little money. In this painting the materials used were oil on a canvas. There is foreshadowing in this picture because of the small objects that appear in the back giving it the illusion that the objects are in the distance. The colors in this painting appear to me to be primary colors with some secondary colors as well.
