Millet and Modern Art: From Van Gogh to Dalí

Published February 26, 2020

Millet and Modern Art: From Van Gogh to Dalí is a groundbreaking exhibition that examines, for the first time, the international legacy of French painter Jean-François Millet. Millet was a pioneer in developing innovative imagery of rural peasantry, landscapes, and nudes, and his work had a deep impact on later generations of artists. In the late 19th century he was arguably the best-known modern painter, and his works sold for the highest prices of any modern pictures at auction. Today Millet is less well known, and this exhibition seeks to revive his importance and recognize his radicalism.

The exhibition runs from February 16 - May 17, 2020 at the Saint Louis Art Museum, 1 Fine Arts Dr, Saint Louis, MO 63110.
