Re-entry of the harvest

Return of the harvest of Abraham Bloemaert, around 1625-1630. Initially a Mannerist moving towards classicism, this Dutch painter had a Caravaggesque period following the contact with this style around 1620. This painting resulting from his transition to classicism contains elements always influenced by Caravaggio. Despite the lack of light and darkness of this work, the light on this woman enhances the features and curves of his face reminiscent of Caravaggesque style that highlights the defects of his subjects, despite their great beauty in some cases, increasing the realism of their physiognomy.

Exhibited at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
