Art Prices Skyrocket: Women at Work and at Home

"Harvesting Corn," 1950s, by an unknown artist. Here the women's work of gathering corn is supervised by a man. Though the harvesting seems to be primarily done by hand, a tractor is shown on the right side, and in the background a plane is ready to take the harvest to distant parts of the Soviet Union, which at that time was the largest country in the world and spanned 11 time zones. Oil on canvas (120cm x 160cm). Maarten Goedhart Collection.
