THE GLEANERS Under a bright midday sun, in a flat open harvest field, are three women in the foreground. Two, side by side, are bent in the act of picking up the wheat with their right hands as they move towards our left. The third is standing on our right turned away from us. In the background to the left are a couple of stacks, and a waggon with a full load approaching them.
