Title: First Regional Exhibition of Corsican Grain Farming

Vintage Italian poster for an agricultural festival. The poster, despite its unassuming farming focus, is veiled in drama: two Roman-style statues struggle for dominance at the forefront, the woman seemingly trying to escape from the man, while husks of wheat shoot out behind them, framing the scene.
