Publisher Description

The nineteenth century French painter Gustave Courbet almost single-handedly challenged and subverted the prevailing tastes of High Art, rebelling against the Romantic painting of the day. He turned attention instead to everyday themes and the lives of ordinary men and women, eschewing the age-old subjects of religious and historical art. His enormous canvases shocked the art establishment and prepared the way for the innovative creations of the modernist period. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Courbet’s complete paintings in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
