A Winnower by Jean-François Millet (1814-1875, France) | Oil Painting | WahooArt.com
Millet's early works were modelled on eighteenth-century pastorals, but during the 1840s the influence of Daumier encouraged him to paint in a more vigorous and sober style. His Winnower of 1848 set the seal on this new direction. The painting was exhibited at the Salon of 1848.
