Peasants in pastels. Millet and Pastel Revival

Exhibition October 29, 2019 − May 10, 2020
For a long time associated with aristocratic portraiture, pastel went out of fashion by the middle of the 19th century, when Jean-Francois Millet turned this way of drawing to a completely different purpose: scenes of modern peasant life.

At the exhibition "Peasants in Pastels"presents a collection of pastels by Millet and his followers on the relationship between rural labor and urban art collecting.
