The Gleaners
The Gleaners is an oil painting by Jean-François Millet completed in 1857. It depicts three peasant women gleaning stray stalks of wheat from a field after the harvest. The painting, with its sympathetic depiction of what were then the lowest ranks of rural society, was received poorly by the French upper classes, but today is Millet's best known work.Painting: Jean-François Millet
