Commentary

From the Evening World: "'Ploughing' is impressionistic. The operation is well symbolized and there is much introduced in the action in the canvas."

As described in the Springfield Republican: "the plowing is up hill on a bright April morning, with some moist clouds, and beyond are hills; the scene is full of air and free movement."
