“This question ? Millet draws like that too ? more than anyone else ? is perhaps the root of all figure painting ? is extremely closely related to modelling by drawing directly with a brush ? conceived totally differently from Bouguereau and others, who lack interior modelling, are flat compared with G?ricault and Delacroix, and who don?t go beyond the paint.”
