The Met describes The Harvesters as the “first modern landscape in Western art.” Set on the outskirts of Antwerp in July or August, it depicts a range of activities representative of 16th-century Belgian rural life. The harvesters in the foreground rest and dine while their compatriots shake fruit from a tree. In the distance, ships sail, figures bathe, and villagers participate in the blood sport of cock throwing. Commissioned by the merchant banker Nicolaes Jonghelinck, the painting was one of six (or possibly twelve) depicting different times of the year.
