Courbet A&I (Art and Ideas) by James Henry Rubin

Few artists have been so directly invoved in the events of their time asustave Courbert. Amid the social transformations of the mid-19th century,ourberts unconventional and stark paintings came to embody values withadical political implications.;Rebuffed by the Parisian art world andttacked as aRealist, he seized upon that name to assert his sympathy forrdinary citizens and their down-to-earth experience. Coubert paintedubjects from the world around him: from rural labourersand family gatheringso sensuous landscapes, hunting scenes, still lifes, portraits and eroticudes.;James Rubin addresses the full range of Courbets work and combines alose reading of the paintings with a discussion of the personal, political,conomic and social circumstances in which they were created.
