- oil on canvas
Private collection, France
This painting, in excellent condition and hitherto unseen at auction, is an accomplished example of Daumier’s art which captures a humble, everyday scene and transforms it into a monumental and universal subject, far from simple genre painting. Another version of this work can be found in the Oskar Reinhart collection at Winterthur in Switzerland.
