Harry Becker is an artist who draws one into the subject of his picture. He makes you feel part of the task at hand, and as a Suffolk farmer’s daughter myself, I can see that he interprets a true picture of harvesting life in the countryside of his era. He used colour as appropriate as well as creations of ‘atmosphere in the absence of colour’ which not only embraced dull days and night time but also the cyclical nature of farming, where time does not stand still.
