1866-67 pastel, carton 96.0×68.0cm


A work in the pastels that Millet used often in his late years. This masterpiece, nothing inferior to oils in power, depicts a peasant diligently laboring at agricultural work. 1853 saw the publication of the “Labors of the Fields” series of woodcuts of Millet’s original drawings. One of those woodcuts, Mowing, was based on The Reaper.
