Abstract

The haystacks were a subject commonly treated by the impressionist painters in this period when they started painting outdoors. Millet had shown the way, Van Gogh painted some around Arles in 1888 and Monet will paint a famous series in 1991. But it was in a farmyard that Gauguin would set-up his easel to paint two women doing imprecise tasks on an large rick of hay. He used the complete range of yellows to give a butter-like thickness to it. The bottom of the painting was worked more quickly and shows the parallel strokes that were one of Gauguin's trademarks.
