The Woodmen and Gardeners

I chose this paiting by Andrew Festing because I thought the reasoning behind it was cool. He makes a point that portraiture is a "practice begun in and most commonly reserved for, the upper echelons of society." Here he depicts woodmen and gardeners in a working environment, relaxed and in working clothing. We don't recognize anyone in the paiting and they are all just common blue collar workers.
