Excerpt from The Drawings of Jean François Millet: With Fifty Facsimile Reproductions of the Master's Work
Not that, at the epoch of Millet's appearance, the ideas he expressed were altogether novel. They were in the air, and we shall see how attempts were made to draw Millet, despite himself, into the camp of the theorists and agitators who were proclaiming the new idea]. He found it no easy matter to defend himself against those misconceptions which contributed to envenom the prejudices awakened by his pictures. But it was, as a matter of fact, the first time such words were spoken and such thoughts formulated in Art apart from any preconceived idea, any definite theory and system, with an energy so extraordinary, a persuasive power so compelling, and all the unconscious force of a nature predestined to the task by the harmonious conjunction of personal temperament, racial aptitude, and special education.
