The exhibition Millet and Modern Art: From Van Gogh to Dalí illustrates just how progressive the work of Jean-François Millet (1814-1875) was for his time. With his radical painting technique, modern style and inspirational portrayal of peasant life, Millet undoubtedly sowed the seeds of modern art.
This is the first exhibition to explore how Millet’s work inspired the art of numerous well-known artists, such as Vincent van Gogh, Camille Pissarro, Georges Seurat, Claude Monet, Giovanni Segantini, Winslow Homer, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Edvard Munch, Kazimir Malevich and Salvador Dalí. This exhibition traveled first to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and concluded its tour at the Saint Louis Art Museum.
