Description
Composition in tones earthy, ochre, green, white, blue and red. Smooth texture. It depicts men working with coffee, with planting in the background. In the foreground, at the bottom on the right, man standing in front with his feet cut by the bottom edge of the support, having an open bag of coffee and full ahead. Wearing a hat, scarf around his neck, carries a kind of bucket in his on the left hand and has not defined facial features. To the left, a little further back, another worker, full body, as if walking toward the lower on the left corner of the holder, with a coffee bag on his shoulders. Has pants rolled up to the height of the shins and also is not defined facial features. Cutting the bottom on the left of the support, it appears a piece of white ladder. In the background, on the left bank of the holder, a stack of sacks; slightly to the right, a smaller battery and a lowered hat man facing right. In the third level, a few men working - two with stairs - a small stack of bags to the center and a piece of field prepared for planting the on the right. In the background, coffee plantation with converging rows to the horizon center, a cloud band and the other, narrower, bright blue sky.
