Description

The large canvas is one of the masterpieces of the painter from Monza Eugenio Spreafico: along a dirt road in the countryside, marked by the furrows of the wheels of the wagons, a group of young women advances towards the observer who, having finished the work, return to their homes at sunset . Often considered a sort of feminine "Fourth Estate", the painting evokes the Monza reality of the late nineteenth century, immersed in the climate of attention to the real data and social dynamism of the time, without however polemic or denunciation implications as always in the production dello Spreafico, an attentive observer with a participating gaze. The work was exhibited for the first time in 1895 in Genoa where it was on sale for the sum of Lire 3000; According to the comments of the time, it is a subject already treated by Spreafico - but not only - in similar compositions from the 1880s, subsequently taken up as evidence of the iconographic success of the model of female workers who advance while singing.
