The gleaners

Visit these hardworking women.

The French artist Jean-François Millet has made a print of some women gathering up the last bits of corn left behind after harvesting the crop.

Look at the shapes of their bodies as they bend to pick up the corn.

Role-play how they are standing. Is it comfortable?
