Abstract
Millet, who was born in a peasant family, devoted his talent to depicting famers in rural area. At his early years, he lived through a painful exploration stage to find his own painting style, but soon he found his amazing endowment in depicting famers. He depicted famers with great affection, themes of his works are almost farmers, which express famers’ simplicity and reflect reality of country life. He is known as the greatest farmer painter. Farmers painted by him give off solemnity and loftiness, not possessed by pastoral painting. The painting style is dignified and plain and the modeling is simple. He created a series of works taking farmers’ living and labor as themes. His main representative works include The Gleaners, The Angelus, The Sower and so on.
