The first of many paintings featuring peasant girls in the vaults or cellars of large chateaux.
The granary was apparently in Saint Maximin la St. Baume,
a small provencal town dwarfed by its vast Basilica which houses the reliquary of St. Mary Magdalene.
Her skull, enshrined in a golden statue deep in a vaulted crypt, is found by some to be a gruesome or at least unnerving feature.
