moreExcellent vintage print after drawing Maternal Duties, study for the canvas in the Louvre and cliché-verre, by Jean-François Millet (1814-1875). Signed in the print: "J.F.Millet". Original piece is 11 and 11/16"H x 8 and 15/16"W, Majovszky Collection. Printed on high quality heavy paper. Excellent condition - never used. Budapest, Hungary 1959.
Born to modestly successful Norman peasants, Millet began studying art in Cherbourg at eighteen. In 1837 he received funding to study at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. After ten years of mixed success while he supported himself with portraits, The Winnower appeared at the Salon of 1848 and was the first of his peasant pictures to sell. In 1849 he moved to Barbizon in Fontainebleau forest, where he lived for the rest of his life, mostly in grim poverty. There he painted his most famous works, including The Man with a Hoe.
Millet portrayed the gravity, hardship, and dignity of common agricultural laborers, but, despite being labeled a "Socialist revolutionary," his viewpoint was less political than fatalistic. Between 1865 and 1869, he produced over one hundred pastels, considered among his finest works. After decades of struggle, he was awarded a medal at the 1867 Exposition Universelle and received the Légion d'Honneur in 1868. Millet's humanity toward peasant life deeply impressed many painters, including Vincent Van Gogh. less
