Scottish artist Alexander Mann's oil painting The Gleaners (1889) is the most beautifully composed painting I've seen in yonks. It follows the French theme of bucolic working class subjects, although it was probably painted whilst Mann was living in Berkshire. The painting comes to London for Sotheby's auction of Scottish art on 18 November, estimated at £60,000 to £80,000 (CLICK).
