Citation:  
Index Words:  haystack, workers, resting, women, fork
Place:  France
Notes:  The unusual composition has prompted speculation that some of the painting has been destroyed. At the base of a haystack which towers out of the frame at left, three women and a man are resting. The man is lying down with his back to the observer. One of his companions is standing and apparently eating from her right hand, while holding a rough wooden fork with her left. The two other women are seated. The closer of them is beautifully lit and has her hand extended. The other, in shadow, seems almost like a continuation of the stack behind her.
