Challenging Tradition: Millet and the Barbizon School

Lecturer: Frank Woodgate
In this, his bicentenary year, we will look at Millet's powerful paintings - including The Angelus and The Gleaners - alongside works by other members of the Barbizon School, and show how artists as varied as Monet, van Gogh, Seurat and Salvador Dali were inspired by his work.
