Jean-Francois Millet's Noonday Rest in Juxtaposition

As you can see, Millet's signature in the lower-right corner of his panting appears to be in the correct alignment.  Why then are both Sargent's and van Gogh's works (reported to be after Millet's) appear to be horizontally flipped, I don't know. Did Millet do more than one of these?
