Following Millet's example

Explore how Millet's paintings inspired Van Gogh in the exhibition Jean-François Millet: Sowing the Seeds of Modern Art.

At the psychiatric clinic in Saint-Rémy, Van Gogh hardly ever had access to live models. Even so, he was keen to practice figure painting. So he arrived at the idea of basing his paintings on engravings of works by Jean-François Millet (1814-1875).

Vincent wrote to his brother about his underlying reason for using the prints in this way: ‘since I am above all ill at present, I’m trying to do something to console myself, for my own pleasure’.
