Peasant Woman and Child


Sketch of a woman and a child, identified as peasants. The woman wears an orange bodice over a blue tunic with an orange skirt underneath, as well as a straw hat with a long blue ribbon. She holds a brown wicker basket in one hand and holds her son's hand with her other. The young boy wears an orange shirt over a white chemise and green trousers. His other hand points to the right of the composition and his mother's gaze follows.
