Segantini 10: Aratura – Das Pflügen, 1890
Show all 4 images
A first version of this painting was already shown and awarded in 1888 and 1889 at exhibitions in London and Paris. Back in Savognin, Segantini painted over the picture completely. The motif of hard peasant work was preserved as in the first version, but it was painted over in the newly developed painting technique of Divisionism.
In a photograph showing Segantini painting the painting, it becomes apparent that the artist painted directly outdoors. He used nature as inspiration and studio. To make this possible, he must have carried the easel and the canvas to the site every day. This was no longer possible with other pictures, which he painted higher up, for example. For this purpose, he had large wooden structures built, which could protect his pictures from the weather for months.
