Interior with a barrel and pitcher and a woman working

  • Description

    Constant Troyon was represented in the Beijing 1978 exhibition of French painting by two works, one of which depicted forestry – a subject Xu Bing showed in many of his early prints and drawings. Both artists preferred landscape to figures. This drawing demonstrates another common preference, in its depiction of the simple objects that are part of everyday life.
