Drawings by Jean-Francois Millet

£24.99

Product description

This little volume was produced to accompany an exhibition mounted by the Arts Council of Great Britain in 1956. The exhibition was shown in Aldeburgh, Cardiff, and London, and, if the illustrations are any guide, must have been most illuminating for any art student. The introduction is by Kenneth Clark,

Jean-François Millet (1814–1875) was a French painter and one of the founders of the Barbizon school in rural France. Noted for his scenes of peasant farmers, he can be categorised as part of the Realism art movement.

Kenneth McKenzie Clark, Baron Clark, OM, CH, KCB, FBA (1903–1983) was a British author, museum director, broadcaster, and one of the best-known art historians and aesthetes of his generation, writing a series of books that appealed to a wide public, while remaining a serious scholar. In 1969, he achieved international fame as the writer, producer and presenter of the BBC Television series "Civilisation", which pioneered television documentary series combining expert personalised narration with lavish photography on location.

The booklet is in excellent condition, quite possibly not opened since it was first purchased by a visitor to the exhibition. Its cream paper covers are undamaged, and the title etc are contained in a greenish decorative border as well as an inner black 3-line border. The stapled binding is firm (though the middle leaf is loose, as the staples are understandably somewhat rusted), and all pages are clean and bright. A loose slip in the front gives the dates and locations of the various exhibitions planned. A collectible catalogue for the discerning collector.
