SKU: 73 country decor

An archival premium Quality art Print of Haymaking by Russian Artist Boris Kustodiev for sale by Brandywine General Store. The artwork shows the Russian peasants out in the steep hilly meadow making the summer crop of hay to use to feed the stock throughout the winter. The picture shows the peasant women who are fully decked out in their colorful attire, clothes which seem to be much to good to be worn in the hay field. Most of the phases of haymaking are shown in this print, the lower women are raking the hay so it will dry, the middle group of workers are piling and stacking the hay, while at the top the workers are loading the dried hay onto a horse pulled wagon to take to the barn. A beautiful Russian scene with the green grass and trees with a log cabin in the center and a small river running through the foreground of the farm. Kustodiev painted this in 1917, the same year in which he lost the use of his legs. From this point on, all of his paintings of the Russian countryside were reminiscences of his youth. He later told him son that this was all he had to do was set in his room and dream of the countryside. Country Decor art print #73
