Sheep, Autumn

Jack Edwards

"Sheep, Autumn", was painted by a Dutch artist whose name was Anton Maure. A weary white-haired farmer is returning home from the hills where he has been watching his flock of sheep. In his right arm he has a baby lamb. He holds a crooked stick in his left arm. Running along beside the shepherd is a brave helpful dog. The tired lambs trudge along behind because they can't keep up with the others. I think this picture is very interesting because it shows a shepherd in Holland.
