Dancing in the Fields
Wonderfully joyous image of a carefree young girl who has cast her clothes to one side and is dancing with gay abandon and nothing but a piece of chiffon to cover her modesty.
The poor old woman alongside her is so shocked she appears to have dropped the potatoes or turnips she's gathering, while the fellow in the next field is so delighted by her performance that he throws up his arms in approval.
Taken from an old French magazine, this one from 1923, and signed Tor. A print of a pen and ink watercolour and a real smile inducer.
Overall size is approx. 33 cm high by 24 wide.
