Description
In 1937-8, Koroyannakis presented in the First Panhellenic Exhibition of Greek Original Engraving (1938) ten woodcuts on upright wood, among which were Night Shift (No. 129), Harvest (No. 135), and Grape Harvest (No. 136). All three works describe scenes with people working, with more realism and powerful figures in Night Shift, though with more lyricism and a narrative approach in Harvest and Grape Harvest.
