THE SEASON OF STORM,
STRESS AND TOIL, 1895
This work is considered by many to be the largest work produced by David Davies. The subject matter of the farmer with his two draught-horses was a common theme at that time and found expression in a number of oils as well as watercolours by various Australian artists.
The work was painted at Templestowe, close to the site where he painted 'Moonrise' in the previous year.
This work was offered for sale through Deutscher Fine Art. A Selection of Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Australian Art. 24 May-9 June, 1989, Catalogue no. 17.
