Despite the attraction of this being the artist’s actual studio, the pictures are poorly lit and the quality is not the best. The guide appeared to have a rather limited knowledge of Millet and the School of Barbizon

A small museum housed in the former home of Francois Millet, the most famous artist of the Barbizon school. Known for the Angelus (de Millet). The exhibition is nothing special but it is interesting to see the actual place where Millet lived and worked.
