Antique French Carved Wood Wall Sculpture The Gleaners by Jean Francois Millet
Antique French Carved Wall Sculpture of The Gleaners by Jean Francois Millet.
Direct from France to us, this very large (45” ht.) antique wood wall sculpture, after Jean Francois Millet, inspired by his oil painting, “The Gleaners”.
Note: Jean-François Millet (1814-1897) was a French artist noted for his oil paintings of pheasant farmers and landscapes, and a source of inspiration for Vincent van Gogh!!!
This piece is a stunning work of art, hand carved from a single piece of wood, with meticulous detail, and true to the design of the original oil painting.
This sculpture re-creates one of Millet’s most well-known paintings, “The Gleaners”, that was completed in 1857. Carvings here feature women removing bits of grain left in the fields following harvest, as the stories told in the Old Testament. The upper carvings reflect farm buildings and stacks of grain; the wide, lower portion include several carved lizards on cobblestones and foliage.
Measurements: 45” ht. x 18.5” x 5”.
This carving is one of two that we recently acquired, sourced in France. The other is a rendition of “The Angelus”, another well-known painting by the same artist, Jean Francois Millet!
