This particular work, entitled ‘The Gleaners, 1963’ was painted almost like a celebration to life assumed by the employment by vivid colours. Multicoloured swishes form the background of the painting while in the foreground, silhouettes of the gleaners in various motions are painted in white and black, which come across almost like they’re dancing. It’s an uplifting and energetic work.
