Whereas Jean-François Millet’s hearty Peasant Woman Raking (AC 1942.86) labors over the soil, Robinson’s figure rests and returns the viewer’s gaze. The Mead’s painting belongs to a group of related works the painter produced while living in Giverny, France, near Claude Monet’s famous home and gardens. Robinson’s broken brushwork reveals the influence of French Impressionism, which he adopted without sacrificing the solidity of form, retained in part through the painter’s reliance on photographic studies. Inspired by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot’s paintings, Robinson’s generally cool palette imbues his composition with a subtly nostalgic mood.
