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 Nochlins 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.
