Most widely held works by Alexandra R Murphy
Jean-François Millet : drawn into the light by Jean François Millet( Book )

18 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few artists of the nineteenth century created works as subtly evocative, as socially poignant, and as artistically influential as Jean-Francois Millet did. This book examines Millet's technical and creative achievement, focusing on his rarely seen pastels, watercolors, and drawings, and considering them as independent works of art, as procedural steps toward paintings, and as important elements in his finished pictures."--Jacket
Jean-François Millet by Alexandra R Murphy( Book )

8 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Blurb: Jean-Francois Millet's vibrant depiction of rural life helped shatter long-standing artistic and academic prejudices in nineteenth-century Europe, opening the door for the flowering of Impressionism and modern art. Born the son of a Normandy farmer, Millet dedicated his career to recording the demanding labor and simple beauties of peasant life in the French countryside. His powerful images of winnowers, gleaners and sowers were denounced as heresy in academic circles. In 1849 Millet joined a growing number of young French painters in Barbizon who had also rejected the status quo and moved out into the country to paint landscapes directly from nature. In so doing, the Barbizon School, and Millet in particular, provided a crucial turning point and directly influenced the work of many artistic giants including Monet, Gauguin, van Gogh, and Degas. "Millet's monumental contribution to art is one of the art world's best-kept secrets," writes Jan Fontein. This book brings that hidden legacy to light at last
