From Library Journal
Murphy and her coauthors share an enormous amount of art curatorial and writing experience, and the latest result of their labors is another superb art exhibition catalog, filled with fine art historical scholarship. An illustrated 30-page introductory essay and detailed catalog annotations discuss both the influence of Millet's most famous paintings (e.g., The Gleaners, c. 1857) and, more importantly, the qualities inherent in many of his influential but little-known and unappreciated drawings, studies, and paintings. Each of the 87 entries is illustrated and annotated with information about the work's provenance and selected references to books and journal articles. Anyone fortunate enough to view the exhibition at the Clark Art Institute (in Williamstown, MA), the Frick Art and Historical Center (Pittsburgh), or...

Habitual Peacefulness of Gruchy: Poems after Pictures by Jean-Fran¿OIS Millet

Book Description
In The Habitual Peacefulness of Gruchy, David Middleton celebrates the artist Jean-François Millet’s sympathetic realism depicting the harsh life of French peasants in the nineteenth century and honoring their essential human dignity. Millet referred to some of his drawings as Epopée des champs, "the epic of the fields." Here, Middleton follows Millet, picture by picture, in taking a lowly pastoral theme and elevating it to epic and tragedy. Middleton seeks to describe Gruchy—the small Norman village near Cherbourg where Millet grew up—and explore that rural world in relation to the American South and his own career as a Louisiana poet. A deep affirmation of the agrarian way of life, Middleton’s poems are an implicit critique of the postagrarian world entering its final stages of decay. ...

Arts Review
"A marvelous and compelling book, which deserves to be read with care by all concerned with art, politics, and society."

Book Description
When this book and its companion volume, Image of the People, appeared in 1973, they were taken as a challenge to the way art was usually written about. "This book," said the Times, "is a product of that school of art history whose history is as well read as its art, and whilst it covers only a small area of time and place, Clark's approach and style are such that it throws up enough ideas and pleasures to illuminate far beyond its rather special circumstances. It is suffused with wit and pathetic irony."
T. J. Clark's subject is painting and printmaking in the years following the 1848 Revolution in France, "a time", he...
