The gleaners by Jean Francoise Millet
Oil reproduction on canvas of “The gleaners”, also known as “Gleaners”, painted by Millet in 1857. It is Millet’s favourite theme, the one that made him famous and the theme he addressed since 1851, which is installed in Barbizon.
In the painting there are three peasant women in the gleaning, which is the action of picking up the spike that has remained on the ground after mowing. The harshness of the peasant women’s work is intuited by the postures they have. On the horizon Millet paints animals pulling carriages full of harvest, peasants and on the right, a character on horseback who seems to be the foreman.
The original is in the “Musée d’Orsay” in Paris.
Millet’s work measures 83.5 x 110 cm.
