Frases Gustave Courbet

„.. [ I ] painted the very people who had been present at the interment, all the townspeople.“

—  Gustave Courbet
from Courbet on Wikipedia Courbet pictured with his painting 'A Burial at Ornans' (1849/50) the funeral of his grand uncle which he attended in September 1848. People who attended the funeral became the models for the painting; no professional models


„When I got back to Ornans, I spent a few days hunting. I quite like the subject of violent exercise... It makes the most surprising painting you can imagine. There are thirty life-size figures in it. It is the moral and physical history of my studio“

—  Gustave Courbet
