Francois Millet, realised at public auction in Paris, in 1889, over half a million francs! Thirty years before, in 1859, Millet had sold it for two thousand francs. And while these men were waiting for recognition, while they suffered from neglect of the official arbiters of art in the exhibitions, while butcher, baker, and colourman were haunting their doors for mod est bills, they never faltered in their fidelity to the highest principles, never wavered in their splendid ideals, but kept manfully on, despite opposition, discouragement - hunger, even, at times; and there were kept up friendships loy ally, with assistance from one to the other when by chance any of the group came upon a meas ure of temporary financial success. They had indeed the faith that moves mountains, the wonderful industry that makes for results, the confidence born of supreme belief in self; and their lives constitute an Object lesson for the painters of all times.
