Millet, Jean François (18141875)

Millet, Jean François, French painter of French peasant life, born near Greville, of a peasant family; sent to Paris, studied under Paul Delaroche, withdrew into rustic life, and took up his abode at the village of Barbizon, near the Forest of Fontainebleau, where he spent as a peasant the rest of his life, honoured though poor by all his neighbours, and produced inimitable pictures of French country life, completing his famous “Sower,” and treating such subjects as the “Gleaners,” the “Sheep-Shearers,” “Shepherdess and Flock,” &c., with an evident appreciation on his part of the life they depicted so faithfully (18141875).
