"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
