Lot Essay

This painting may be dated circa 1913, and is part of a series of paintings depicting havesters that Lhermitte executed near Calais (see M. Le Pelley Fonteny, Léon Augustin Lhermitte, Paris, 1991, p.147, no. 222 for another version).

This painting will be included in the forthcoming supplement to the catalogue raisonné on Lhermitte being prepared by Monique Le Pelley Fonteny.
