A picture that is filled with dynamism, movement, a kind of whirlwind. The heroine of the canvas is captured in a pose that lasts only a moment, and the viewer unconsciously imagines the whole movement of the woman. And the hay, which she gathers, is dry, crumbles, some blade of grass fluttering in the wind, and this also helps to imagine the movement of the heroine and the wind. The author managed to portray her so energetic that it seems that she does not just raise the hay, but sets in motion [Expand]
