The Knitting Lesson (c.1860)
by Jean-François Millet
This Fine Art Friday is a hat-tip to two friends.
Millet is my friend Bonnie’s
favorite artist. When she talked about Millet’s art with our beloved Latin teacher, I loved just being a witness to the conversation. You know what I mean? Great ideas flowing both ways, splashing around, and I just want to catch some of the spray.
Knitting is my friend Donna’s favorite recreation. She has already highlighted several lovely pieces of art related to knitting. I hope you enjoy this lovely piece, Donna.
I’ve decided to highlight an artist for a month of Fridays. Loving alliteration as I do, it will be Millet in March. I know it’s still February. Work with me.
