the East Bridgewater The public library recently received a painting by local artist Francis David Millet. Millet was born in the mid-1800s and lived much of his life in East Bridgewater before dying in the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. The painting, “Millet’s Studio in Venice”, hangs in the FD Millet room of the library alongside other paintings by Millet from the library collection. “Millet was highly respected during his lifetime, but many people in town don’t know about his work or his legacy, which is why it means so much to the library to be able to display so much information and work in his life,” said said Christopher McGhee, director of library services.
