A Herdess with Cows on a Country Road in the Rain, Anton Mauve, 1848 - 1888

brush, h 355mm × w 555mm. More details

A herdess is walking under her umbrella as she drives her four cows forward. ‘The soaking wet atmosphere is captured so well that one’s feet start to feel wet if one looks at the work too long,’ one critic wrote. In contrast to Mauve’s pictures of horse-riders, where the horses always move towards the horizon, the cows in his cattle paintings generally head straight at the viewer.
