Description On a bend in a lane running between wooded fields, a man and two women carry hay. Marie Cazin (née Guillet) was a French painter, sculptor and decorative artist. She was the wife of Jean Charles Cazin. From 1876 she exhibited at the Salon in Paris, at first as a painter of the landscapes, and starting from 1882 as a sculptor. In the 1890s her art moved towards Symbolism; YORAG : 462 seems to be an earlier painting, influenced by the Impressionists.
