Camille Pissarro (French, 1830 - 1903)

Les Glaneuses (The Gleaners)

Les Glaneuses

c. 1889
gouache with charcoal, crayon and watercolor
18 1/4 x 23 in.

Purchased with funds from the Morton R. Hirschberg Bequest, AP.2004.3.1

The Gleaners is a gouache, a heavy, opaque watercolor, and is a preparatory work for an oil painting of the same title now in the collection of the Kunstmuseum in Basel, Switzerland. Pissarro’s subject matter, women working in the field, originated in the Old Testament story of Ruth and Boaz and was popular among Impressionists and other artists of the time.  Gleaning is the process of gathering grain that is leftover after a primary harvest.  It was hard, tedious work done by the poor, who were allowed to keep what they gleaned.  In the story from the Bible, Boaz, a wealthy landowner, sees Ruth, a poor widow, gleaning grain from his fields. He discovers that she and her family are impoverished and he offers assistance, eventually marrying her for her virtue.

Visitor's Comments:

"The Pissarro is one of my favorites because I love to see the artist's mind at work trying to capture a moment in time." - anonymous

The Gleaners is a gouache, a heavy, opaque watercolor, and is a preparatory work for an oil painting of the same title now in the collection of the Kunstmuseum in Basel, Switzerland. Pissarro’s subject matter, women working in the field, originated in the Old Testament story of Ruth and Boaz and was popular among Impressionists and other artists of the time.  Gleaning is the process of gathering grain that is leftover after a primary harvest.  It was hard, tedious work done by the poor, who were allowed to keep what they gleaned.  In the story from the Bible, Boaz, a wealthy landowner, sees Ruth, a poor widow, gleaning grain from his fields. He discovers that she and her family are impoverished and he offers assistance, eventually marrying her for her virtue.

The Gleaners is a gouache, a heavy, opaque watercolor, and is a preparatory work for an oil painting of the same title now in the collection of the Kunstmuseum in Basel, Switzerland. Pissarro’s subject matter, women working in the field, originated in the Old Testament story of Ruth and Boaz and was popular among Impressionists and other artists of the time.  Gleaning is the process of gathering grain that is leftover after a primary harvest.  It was hard, tedious work done by the poor, who were allowed to keep what they gleaned.  In the story from the Bible, Boaz, a wealthy landowner, sees Ruth, a poor widow, gleaning grain from his fields. He discovers that she and her family are impoverished and he offers assistance, eventually marrying her for her virtue.
