Georges  Riad Courbet


Короткий перессказ книги Georges Riad Courbet. Already in his country home he had had a little instruction in painting, and preferred to study the masterpieces of the Louvre. He advocated painting things as they are, and proclaimed that la verite vraie must be the aim of the artist. He went to Paris to study art, yet he did not attach himself to the studio of any of the prominent masters. Over the booth he posted a sign with large lettering. In both directions his spirit of revolt manifested itself. He ignored the fact that to every artist the truth of nature appears under a different guise according to his way of seeing and experiencing. Instead, he adhered to the notion that art is only a copying of nature and not a matter also of selection and arrangement. In his contempt for prettiness Courbet often chose subjects which may fairly be called ugly. He was by nature a revolutionary, a man born to oppose existing order and to assert his independence; he had that quality of bluster and brutality which makes the revolutionary count in art as well as in politics. They depicted men and women as they really are and realistically doing the business in which they are engaged. But that he also had a sense of beauty may be seen in his landscapes. Moreover, in all his works, whether attractive or not to the observer, he proved himself a powerful painter, painting in a broad, free manner, with a fine feeling for colour, and with a firmness of pigment that made all his representations very real and stirring. Ornans, Courbet’s birthplace, is near the beautiful valley of the Doubs River, and it was here as a boy, and later as a man, that he absorbed the love of landscape. Then followed the Funeral at Ornans, which the critics violently assailed: “A masquerade funeral, six metres long, in which there is more to laugh at than to weep over.” Indeed, the real offence of Courbet’s pictures was that they represented live flesh and blood. That sense, mingled with his capacity for deep emotion, appears in his marines – these last being his most impressive work. So at the Universal Exposition of 1855 he withdrew his pictures from the exhibition grounds and set them in a wooden booth, just outside the entrance. It read, simply: “Courbet – Realist.” Like every revolutionary, he was an extremist. His figures were not men and women deprived of personality and idealised into a type, posed in positions that will decorate the canvas. At first his pictures were not sufficiently distinctive to arouse any opposition, and were admitted to the Salon.
