The cornfield has been harvested and the stooks of corn stacked ready for gathering. This painting of an extensive landscape with buildings and trees silhouetted against the blue sky is in rich oil paint. The foreground cornstooks and the trees have been painted with thick impasto paint giving texture to the elements of the composition. The darker colours of the background and the atmospheric blue to the hills give depth to the composition.
