Historical Context
In most of Alten's early works that reflect the theme of agrarian work, there are no sparkling or dazzling skies to distract the viewer. Instead the light and air are manipulated only as much as it illuminates the rural work depicted.
Description
Silhouette of horses in a work field with a yellow sunset under a gray, overcast sky in the background.
