The Gleaners

Click on the picture to enlarge it.
I was reminded the other day that we had a copy of this painting on the walls of the
houses we grew up in back in the 1940s and 1950s.
Since we lived in the South I guess it fit right in. But this painting is French.
If you read the information about this painting in the link below you will
find it had an interesting history.
Also mentioned in the link is the fact that
The painting can be seen hanging on the wall of Sheriff Andy Taylor's house in many episodes of the original Andy Griffith Show.
Small world.
