dc.description Published in: Le Charivari, October 7, 1858.
dc.description.abstract A man shows a lady how he crushes grapes...with his feet. Although she is shocked, he tells her it won't dirty the grapes since he took off his shoes. The wine harvested in the vineyards of the Argenteuil area had the reputation of having been treated with sulphur, which apparently could sometimes be hazardous to one's health. Daumier liked to portray Parisians spending their vacation in the countryside. He pointed out the difference between city people and country folks. In this case, the naïve couple watching the farmers pressing the wine is amazed to see that they are doing it bare-footed.
