"Trespassing depicts a woman having been caught stealing things for her fire- known as faggot gathering. The woman's expression is one of guilt and remorse. Trespassing's content highlights the plight of the poor, and this is further extenuated with the cold snow-clad setting. The landowner-intentionally taller and therefore more dominant than the woman - is supported by his good companion, the dog unlike the woman who is alone. He also carries a gun.
E. Verestchagen was a Hungarian artist who painted wintry and animal scenes..."
