Women & Gardens during a Dry Spell by Theodore Robinson (1852-1896)

.
A breezy cool front came through our area today, but still no rain. The dryness reminded me of the garden paintings of American Impressionist Theodore Robinson, where women appear tending the gardens & constantly at the well for more water. Thought I would share them with you.
