Jean-François Millet: Drawn Into the Light

Yale University Press, 1999 - 137 pages
0 Avis
Few artists of the nineteenth century created works as subtly evocative, as socially poignant, and as artistically influential as Jean-Francois Millet did. This book examines Millet's technical and creative achievement, focusing on his rarely seen pastels, watercolors, and drawings, and considering them as independent works of art, as procedural steps toward paintings, and as important elements in his finished pictures.
