The SowerJean-François Millet, circa 1850Oil on canvas
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!
The painting is displayed in the bottom right corner of the museum.
- Note: Prior to New Leaf, paintings did not have visual differences between forged and genuine versions. Therefore, paintings given to Blathers were fake or authentic at random.
|The painting is always genuine and has no forgery.|

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 now on display in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.
