Vintage - a picture showing women working at the grape harvest. The genre scene becomes a field for interesting formal solutions and fun with color. The silhouettes of the women shown in the foreground have been monumentalized, as if in Courbet's realistic canvases. Especially the figure with a red headscarf seems to dominate the rest of the employees and the environment. The composition is based on a circle plan, its dynamism is additionally enhanced by elongated brush strokes. Another element influencing the specificity of the canvas is the color scheme. The dominant green color was complemented by the use of red accents.
