In this farmyard scene, Bernard freely distorts the forms of the two women, endowing them with swollen, gently curving shapes. With a droll touch, he places the crouching woman in a posture that parallels the mound of hay behind her and echoes the stance of the pigs she is feeding.
Similar to a technique Bernard often used in his paintings, he outlines the forms with a dark border that leads the eye continuously around the curving elements of the composition.
Bernard hand painted other versions of this print with different colors, making each impression unique.
