In a letter to his brother Theo in 1885, Vincent Van Gogh observed: “Lhermitte’s a master of the figure. He’s able to do what he likes with it. There’s something astonishing and masterly in everything he does.”

Washing laundry on the banks of the Marne was a favorite subject for the artist, but this composition is among his most striking. While the women’s labor is hard, the cadence of their movement appears almost dancelike as dusk approaches.
