Linda Nochlin has devoted herself to a lifelong study of Gustave Courbet, arguably the most radical of all 19th-century painters and one of the fathers of modern art.
Now, in this landmark book, every aspect of his oeuvre comes under Nochlin's scrutiny - from his vast realist depictions of provincial French life, allegorical works, and paint-encrusted landscapes to his dark, brooding portraits, sensual nudes and earthy still lifes.
