Des Glaneuses, or The Gleaners, is an oil painting by Jean-Francois Millet which dates from 1857. It shows three peasant women gathering wheat from a field that has already been harvested, presenting a beautiful depiction of the age-old practice of gleaning. It's also interesting to note that the painting was ill-received by the upper classes in 19th century France, who felt it was an improper glorification of the working class. Look how far we've come! Gleaning is now seen by many as an honorable activity that helps prevent food waste and feeds hungry parts of the community.
