Woman with a Rake

Jean-François Millet French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 802

Millet first treated this subject in a woodcut, one of ten in the series Labors of the Fields that were published in a popular periodical in 1853. The art dealer Martinet, in whose gallery such avant-garde artists as Courbet and Manet exhibited, included this painting in a show in 1860.
