The Spinner, Goat-Girl from the Auvergne after Millet Sepia Photogravure - c. 19th Century, FranceThe Spinner, Goat-Girl from the Auvergne after Millet Sepia Photogravure - c. 19th Century, France

The Spinner, Goat-Girl from the Auvergne sepia tone photogravure on fine India paper after Millet. Jean Francois Millet (1814-1875) was a French Barbizon School realistic painter. He came from a deeply religious, humble rural family and saw Godliness in the physical labor of peasants. Unlike his fellow Barbizon painters, who mostly painted landscapes, the protagonists in Millet's works were peasants at work. Photogravure was a costly and involved process developed in the 19th Century. It transferred a photographic negative to a copper plate which was then inked, much like an engraving plate, and printed on paper. Photogravures produced soft, subtle and close to nature images perfect for the faithful reproduction of fine art. This image of a spinner would be perfect to decorate a textile / wool / knit / fabric related setting. Photogravure in good used condition with toning; old frame with small losses and imperfections as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: Frame: 18.5" by 15.5"; Image: 11" by 8 3/4" approximately.

Item ID: 1859 B
