The Harvesters and detail, oil on wood, 1565.  Pieter Breughel, c.1525-1569, Netherlandish.  Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY

This golden painting of the communal work of harvesting, made for a merchant and one of a cycle of paintings about the seasons, is said to mark the breaking point in the Western tradition of pictorial representation between work done with a religious theme and work which is representational of the reality as perceived by the artist at the time of the work without reference to a religious tradition.
