An artist assessed as much by his personality as by his work, French painter and writer Gustave Courbet's renown centers on his paintings of peasants and labourers of the mid-nineteenth century and his presentation of himself as a passionate social commentator. Motivated by strong political views, Courbet's art formed a paradigm of Realism: a consciously democratic attempt to objectively represent contemporary life. This in-depth Grove Art Essentials title explores the life and work of the ground-breaking artist, from his training and early politicized works through an analysis of Courbet's writings, critical reception, and posthumous reputation.
