Knight’s works during the 1870’s and 1880’s focused on the peasant at work in the fields or doing the day’s chores - collecting water or washing clothes at the riverside. The Farewell captures all the elements of his work - the subdued light and color, the finely detailed figure and the his acute attention to detail.
