This painting is an object study of a wheat sheaf. The sketch uses simple and expressive brushstrokes to convey the rigidity of the stalk as well as the tautness of the binding string. Physical Description
This is a painting of a wheat sheaf. The subject is tilted in the middle of the page, extending almost to the bottom left and upper right corners. On the bottom left are two vertical inscriptions written in black. The outermost one is shorter yet written larger and is followed by a red stamp inscription. Directly to the right and starting higher on the page is a second longer yet smaller written inscription.
