Provenance: A private parisian
In 1884, Pissarro settled in
Eragny-sur Epte with his family, and his interest in country life was
unceasing. The subject of a woman weeding is one of many daily farm chores
that he treated in various media over the years.
There is an impression of the
first state in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (see https://collections.ashmolean.org/object/403837), which appears to be
the impression cited by Delteil.
* As Pissarro did not yet have a printing press at hand in Eragny, he relied on other well-versed peintres-graveurs to print his plates. Frédéric Jacque, who had learned the art of printmaking from his father, Charles Jacque, regularly worked with Pissarro in this capacity.
