‘PAYSANS POLONOIS.’

– (Polish Peasants) This image depicts Polish peasants, likely in a rural setting, engaging in conversation. The men are dressed in attire appropriate for their social status and the era, with one wearing a simple long coat and trousers, accented with a sash at the waist, which was a common element in traditional Polish peasant dress. The hats worn by both men are also indicative of the regional style. The backdrop, showing a building that could be a barn or storage house, along with the fence and the countryside landscape, situates them firmly in a pastoral context, suggesting their connection to the land and agrarian way of life.
