“The precisely thought-out composition has given way here to an apparently incidental image area. On the stone bench to the left of the painting stands a clay jug, to the right a flat basket, presenting its content - corn cobs - to the viewer. A pumpkin and a wicker basket stand on the rough dirt floor, and on the uneven wall herbs have obviously been hung up to dry. The rough treatment of the surfaces, the lack of detail in the individual objects and the two-dimensional appearance all suggest that the work dates to her late creative period, probably around 1900.” (Michaela Schwab, Olga Wisinger-Florian, Vienna 1991, p. 111)
