Jean François Millet (1814-75)'Going to Work'1863 Etching


Millet began etching in the mid 1850s, making a series of prints after his own paintings. This is a version of a picture that is now in Glasgow. The simple fork and water jar carried by the peasants are, for the time the print was made, old-fashioned. The two figures, their features in deep shadow, appear to represent age-old archetypes rather than individuals.
