oil on canvas, h 35.5cm × w 46cm. More details

A farmer separates the wheat from the chaff, while chickens eagerly pick at the fallen grains. The raking light of the low-hanging sun evokes an early evening atmosphere. The architectural style of the cylindrical building in the distance situates the scene in Italy. Such southern pastoral and peasant idylls were Dujardin’s speciality.
