The Potato Harvest. c. 1920. Lithograph printed in black ink on green wove paper. 9 3/8 x 12 1/ 2 (sheet 13 3/8 x 19 5/8). Lettered on stone with Millet's initials: 'J.F.M'. Annotated with production detail by F E Jackson: 'F.E.J. imp 22'. Not in Burty, Delteil or Melot. The stone (which is now in the Whitworth Art Gallery) was 'rediscovered' and printed for the first time in 1920 by Francis Ernest Jackson for the dealers Ernest Brown & Phillips in an edition of 200, of which this impression is no. 22. It has since been discovered that the stone was a fake made by Millet's grandson (based on information provided to the British Museum by Sarah Hyde of the Whitworth). The original painting of the subject is at The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland. $1,500.
