JEAN-FRANÇOIS MILLET

PATH THROUGH THE WHEAT, ABOUT 1867

About the Artwork

Millet’s biographer Alfred Sensier quoted him as saying, “If I could do what I wanted, or at least attempt it, I would do nothing that was not the result of an impression received from nature, be it in landscapes or figures.” In many works, impressions from nature were combined with inspiration from other artistic sources. A sixteenth-century engraving of Summer provided the basis for elements of this very fine pastel.
