gustave courbet

The Met is staging the first full retrospective in thirty years of French realist Gustave Courbet. Featuring 130 canvases, the show also "includes a selection of nineteenth-century photographs that relate to Courbet's work, especially his landscapes and nudes". It is a wonderful opportunity to see the work of this leader of early modernism.
