Description

Jean Désiré Gustave Courbet   (10 Jun, 1839 – 31 Dec, 1906)

“The expression of beauty is in direct ratio to the power of conception the artist has acquired.” – Courbet
Gustave Courbet, born as Jean Désiré Gustave Courbet, was a renowned French artist during the 19th century Realist movement. He was dedicated to presenting his independent style in art as he steered clear of the traditional art techniques during his time. In fact, his unique styles became a source of inspiration among the cubists and impressionists. It was his paintings during the 1840’s that made him quite popular. His masterpieces attempted to challenge the conventions during that time. Most of his paintings also featured less political subjects such as nudes, still life, hunting scenes, and landscapes.
