    If you don't mind Volk und Rasse ... I'll reply something to this (as Erik Nikolai Järnefelt 1863 - 1937 was Finnish Swede painter & professor in Finland).

    ''The painting depicts an old method of agriculture.
    Burning existing vegetation used to be a common method for making soil fertile for cultivation. The picture, which Järnefelt partly painted outdoors, shows peasants toiling at a slash-andburn site in Savo. Later the artist also used photographs he had taken of people and landscapes as reference.

    One of the photos was of Johanna Kokkonen, a 14-year-old girl who participated in the burning; she served as the model for the little girl in the painting. The title of the painting is an allusion to a line in the Kalevala about a little
    maid servant.

    The European trends of realism and naturalism were eagerly adopted in Finland.
    Instead of the former idealising manner, subjects were now depicted without trying to conceal poverty or
    deformity. When this painting was exhibited, its poignant motif sparked a debate about the rights of the
    poor. This painting is Järnefelt’s most famous work and an icon of the golden age of Finnish art, and one of
    the period’s most socially critical depictions of common people.''


    At school we once discussed about some of Finland's paintings. This was among of them. Mainly answering questions. Wants to try the same? LOL.

    1. What thing in the picture caught your attention first?

    2. Look at the person / persons in the picture: What can you tell about them by looking at their face,
    expression, gestures, pose or clothes?


    3. What is beautiful (and the opposite: what is ugly)?

    4. How are the objects and the people positioned in the picture?

    5. How has the artist used lights and shadows?

    Interesting. Thanks for the reply. I'm curious of what he'd say about the modern age.
    A life as a poor medieval peasant would be preferable to the nightmare we life in now.
    Nevermind they paid less in taxes and had more free time.
