A beautiful late 19th Century print of a young couple praying in the fields before going back home. This couple is poor, devout and thankful for the crop they have harvested. This kind of scene hearkens back to 19th Century Quebec and the Prairies, as well. We know of their hardships by the meagre crops they've pulled out of the ground. The woman seems pregnant and yet they are filled with serenity. They live on from one day to the next coming closer and closer to resemble the land they are working on, while spiritually they believe their lives are moving closer to heaven.
The frame is in good condition but for that one small spot on the left side of the print. The back of this picture is fastened by very old nails. These appear to be small nails from a blacksmith's or a pioneer's stock.
Ready to hang.
