Drawing inspiration from natural motifs, Gustave Courbet reset the course of French painting to embrace immediacy, vitality, and painterly self-expression. This book illustrates a highly selective group of landscapes from 1855 to 1877, most of them from the 1860s, when Courbet discovered in the countryside of his native Franche-Comte and on the shores of the Normandy coast a consistently rich source of visual stimulation

When the great French realist painter Gustave Courbet (1819-1877) began his career in the 1840s, grand historical, mythological, and biblical themes were still felt to be the most fitting subjects for ambitious painting. Yet Courbet, a dynamic and boundlessly self-confident man, proud of his rural origins and guided by his strong republican beliefs, rejected these subjects as too remote from actual experience. Instead, he depicted scenes of everyday life, particularly among the peasants and the working class, with a naturalism then considered shocking. His paint handling was correspondingly direct: disdaining the "licked finish" of the academic painters, he laid on his colors boldly, often with a palette knife as well as a brush. And Courbet's vision was as expansive as it was daring: while his reputation is founded on the heroically scaled realist masterworks A Burial at Ornans and The Painter's Studio, he also executed many excellent nudes (including the notoriously explicit Origin of the World), portraits and self-portraits, landscapes, marines, and even still lifes. This lucidly written monograph from noted art historian Ségolène Le Men provides a new understanding of how Courbet's life and milieu shaped his art. Le Men organizes her text both chronologically and thematically: while the five chapters correspond to the successive phases of Courbet's career, each comprises several subsections that discuss individual aspects of his oeuvre. This hybrid approach allows Le Men to present a multifaceted view of Courbet's artistic achievements, exploring their relation to the politics, the literature, the popular imagery, and even the music of his time. With more than three hundred stunning color illustrations, including all of Courbet's most important paintings and many fine examples of his draftsmanship, this is the definitive study of a painter whose spirited pursuit of an independent aesthetic path has led many critics to call him "the first modern artist."

"The life and work of Gustave Courbet (1819-1877) were defined by his rejection of the academic painting tradition and conservative politics in France. His work marks the beginning of a development that continues to shape our understanding of art today. Courbet's ability to play with the expectations of the viewer, his accents of color, his use of hidden references to classical iconography, and, above all, the emphasis that he placed on his individuality as an artist have made him a key figure in the period of transition from traditional to modern painting. His famous work, L'origine du monde (The Origin of the World, 1866), is the focus of this opulent volume, and it is framed by no less spectacular self-portraits, depictions of women, landscapes, seascapes, and winter images dating from later in his career. Examining the broad spectrum of Courbet's oeuvre, the publication includes the most recent research on the artist's strategy of ambiguity and his revolutionary use of color."--Publisher's website

Eugène Delacroix assiste aux combats et s'inspire des 'Trois glorieuses' pour réaliser 'La liberté guidant le peuple'. L'oeuvre choque et suscite une vive polémique.
