Courbet, Paperback Book

Courbet Paperback

Part of the Art & Ideas series


Amid the background of social turbulence in the mid-nineteenth century, Gustave Courbet's unconventional paintings of real people in everyday scenes came to embody values with radical political implications.

James Rubin addresses the entire range of Courbet's work: from his hunting scenes and spirited landscapes, to his portraits and erotic nudes.

He combines a clear reading of the artist's paintings with a rigorous discussion of the unique personal, political and social framework within which they were created.
