The work was painted in oil on canvas in the period of 1912. At the moment, its location is the House Museum named after B. M. Kustodiev, in the city of Astrakhan.
Kazimir Severinovich with this picture wanted to show an organism that lives and develops according to its own laws. The Fauvists of France served as a guide for the artist.
The image of the picture that managed to become true is a holiday of labor. It successfully combines the coloristic compositional plan of the picture. Looking at the picture, we see how the artist overturned the law of aerial perspective.
Here it is shown how the rural woman has a difficult fate, how hard it is for her to work in the field during the harvest season. The artist spared no means to express emotions and feelings: large bare feet, hands disproportionately large for her growth. With one hand he holds spikelets of wheat, in the other she has a sickle. Kazimir Malevich used Suprematism and Primitivism in conveying the hunched figure of a peasant woman. Due to this, we do not feel the plane of the figure, there is perspective and space. The only figure that is shown flat is the profile of her face.
On the canvas, we see that the artist is experiencing a turning point in creativity. Here are the simple problems that the peasants had. In order to make the paintings look more expressive, Malevich depicted the figures a little deformed (for example, large disproportionate feet), simplified as much as possible the people he depicted.
The size of the painting is 73x70.
