Description Millet painted this piece of a farmer sowing wheat seeds in a field after moving to the countryside from Paris. If the piece reminds you of Van Gogh, that's likely because Van Gogh himself was inspired by it!

Real-world information[edit]

The Sower

A pioneering work of realism, this oil painting, completed in 1850, shows a glum-looking peasant sowing seeds in a field. This image of poverty enraged the upper classes of France at the time, who criticized his work for showing how workers struggled- many paintings at this time expressed an idyllic middle-class life, full of color and warmth.

The Sower is currently on display in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.
