"A 1944 Pastoral: Land Girls Pruning at East Malling" by Evelyn Dunbar

Discovered this industrious painting by British artist, Evelyn Dunbar, paired with a pertinent poem by Ivor Gurney, on the 'First Known When Lost' blog. I always find something of interest on fellow blogger, Stephen Pentz's site and urge you to pop over there for a better look.

Whilst looking at the same painting, I came across this debate thread asking if this is the first painted record of pruning as a subject by an artist!  http://networkedblogs.com/7OTug

Wonderful painting, and also thank you for the link to First Known When Lost, which I hadn't come across before.
