Description
The Gardener is one the artist's most important works. It shows a labouring man, within his social context, depicted by simple means, in an attempt to convey the essence of his being. The result is the creation of a totally realistic composition and of a living form of expression. The work was produced in 1938. A second copy, a little larger and with some differences in the clothing, is to be found in the Municipality of Athens Gallery.
