Farmers at Work

image

May 1 is Labor Day in Italy. It’s celebrated, not only by recognizing the labor force, but also by barbecuing and picnicking with friends and family as tribute to the start of the summer months. This painting from 1950 is called Farmers at Work, or “Contadini al lavoro.” It is by Bagherese painter Renato Guttuso.
