Today's featured picture


Harvesters is a 1905 oil painting on canvas by the Danish artist Anna Ancher, a member of the artists' community known as the Skagen Painters. Unlike many works of the community, this painting depicts not the fishing activities in Skagen, but a man and two women on their way to start the harvest in the fields. Owing to its depiction of a bountiful harvest and a scythe, the work has been interpreted as juxtaposing life and death. The painting is in the collection of Skagens Museum.
