This painting features riotous colors—deep purples, reds, blues, and pinks—and paint thickly slathered on the canvas. The subject, a Dutch peasant girl eating an apple in a casual, unstudied pose, demonstrates the early 20th-century German taste for Dutch genre scenes that represent the working class.
