Jean-François Millet, The Gleaners, 1857, oil on canvas, 83.8 x 111.8 cm, Musée d’Orsay, Paris. Source
It is unsurprising to hear that the French aristocracy did not appreciate Millet’s sympathetic depictions of the working classes. The Gleaners, which features three female field workers collecting the last of the harvest,was particularly badly received at the Salon exhibition of 1857.
