"Fruit Pickers"
"The Fruit Pickers," one of the two "Earth" murals by Frank brangwyn, in the cloister of the Court of the Ages. The composition is remarkably fine, with the sweep of the figures from the upper part of the canvas at the left to the group at the base. The pose of the figures is skilfully indicated, though the outline of the boy's figure to the right is exaggerated for decorative effect. The two woman, one holding the babe and the other looking on, are particularly interesting.
