Description

In this painting of rural Minnesota, Cameron Booth depicts three Czech-American farmers. The two women and singular male figure look to be taking a brief respite from preparing a plot of land to grow berries. Two harnessed horses stand behind the man. In the background there is a tall hill, a river, and two domestic buildings sitting at the bottom of the hill. The sky is blue and grey.
