Romantics & Realists: Courbet (DVD, 2006, Full Screen)
The Great Artists, Title: D7065
CONDITION: LIKE NEW
Gustave Courbet loved to present himself as a hard-drinking, radical-thinking peasant artist in mid-nineteenth century Paris, but his public image was largely a creation on his own, but his public image was largely a creation of his own. But with his greatest paintings his radicalism was for real. Courbet's famous peasant scenes like his enormous Burial at Ornans were like nothing ever seen before. This was the art of Realism and many critics were outraged. How could a painter make common people the subject of High Art? But Courbet defied the critics to secure the fame that he craved and deserved. The Great Artists chronicles the lives, times and works of the men whose genius has captivated the art world for generations.
Informative and entertaining, the series highlights important events in each artist's life, explores their stylistic trademarks, and provides detailed explanations of their techniques.
The Great Artists also features expert commentary and analyses from leading authorities, art historians and scholars, new location footage and atmospheric re-creations.
