Jonathan Barrett, ‘An analysis of Jean-François Millet’s The Angelus and the origins of droit de suite through the multifocal lens of love’

ABSTRACT
The role played by Jean-François Millet’s The Angelus in the development of droit de suite has often been highlighted. The story of the cascading series of sales of the painting during which prices rose astronomically is typically recounted, without sceptical inquiry, in order to justify artists being allocated a small share in the resale prices of their artworks in the secondary market.
