An 1891 gouache and chalk on silk painting, Peasant Women Planting Pea Sticks, by Camille Pissarro (1830-1903), the Danish-French impressionist painter. The artist was interested in capturing an idealised view of rural life in many works. The unusual shape is because it was originally made to decorate a fan, thought at that time to be a more marketable object than a square canvas painting. (Ashmolean Museum, Oxford)
