Art and Labour
This May 1st, for International Workers' Day, Art Explora Academy offers you a playlist dedicated to the representation of workers in art. Take a look at 19th century painting and discover how at that time, from Millet to Caillebotte, the industrial revolution and social revolutions became great subjects for painting!
