Art is for everybody! But in 1857, art was still reserved for the middle and upper class only. Millet's large painting about three poor gleaners was received with shock. Why spend such a large canvas on the activities of the poor? The shock was even bigger because the subject of the painting did not have any historical value. Nowadays, it is seen as a turning point in art and inspired several of the most famous Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists. #Millet #JeanFrancoisMillet #Gleaners #TheGleaners #DesGlaneuses #Glaneuses #Harvest #LowerClass #UpperClass #Realism #1857 #MuseedOrsay #Orsay #Paris #Shock #Revolutionary #Art #Painting #Museum #ArtHistory
