The Gleaners was painted in 1857 by Jean-François Millet. It depicts three peasant women gathering the grains of wheat which fell off the stalk when harvested.The house of a wealthy landlord can be seen in the background. Once housed in the Louvre, The Gleaners is currently on display in the Musée d'Orsay.
The Gleaners was a transitional piece between the late Romantic period and the Realist period. It can be classified as Romantic since to many it seems to glorify the hard work of the lower class, as the figures of the women are strong and noble. When it was first exhibited, the painting was criticized by the upper class, who believed it glorified the common worker and lower classes. However, it is unknown whether the artist intended to invoke this reaction, and many interpret the painting to be a simple objective recording of a scene. Some of the typically Realist characteristics this painting features are the careful observation shown and its ambiguous meaning. Also, typically Realist, Millet claims to paint scenes which he actually witnessed.
