Sir Ernest Albert Waterlow's "Galway Gossips, c1887" transports us to rural Ireland, where farm labourers gather for a moment of respite amidst their hard work. Hubert von Herkomer's "Our Village, c1890" showcases the tight-knit community spirit that often defined agricultural life. Henry Herbert la Thangue's "Gathering Plums, 1901" depicts farm labourers engaged in fruitful harvests, reminding us of their vital role in providing sustenance for communities. Axel Frick's poignant painting titled "Matta Virgem, 1895" highlights both the beauty and hardships faced by these workers. Louis Leopold Boilly takes us further back with his piece entitled "The Movings, 1822, " revealing how even centuries ago, farmers had to adapt and relocate their livelihoods. Meanwhile, Paul Limbourg captures picturesque scenes from different months throughout history with works like "July - The Chateau at Poitiers, " offering glimpses into seasonal farming practices. Venturing even further back in time brings us to ancient Egypt with Neb-Hepet's Book of the Dead depicting fields teeming with life as an essential part of existence. And finally Jean Colombe and Hermann Limbourg transport us to medieval France with stunning depictions such as March - The Chateau de Lusignan or June - The Palace and Sainte-Chapelle.
