Courbet: Mapping Realism
  EMAIL TO FRIEND
 
Courbet: Mapping Realism      The exhibition maps the travels and influence on foreign artists of one of Franceís most prolific and innovative painters, the leader of the realist movement, Gustave Courbet. It expands upon an exhibition shown at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium in Brussels from May to August 2013 titled Gustave Courbet & Belgium, which examined the role Belgium played in Courbetís development and the warm response the bold social commentary in his work received from Belgian artists and collectors. Courbet: Mapping Realism adds additional paintings by Courbet in American collections to tell the story of his reception here. An outstanding selection of paintings by Courbetís American contemporaries, including Elizabeth Boott Duveneck, Martin Johnson Heade, Winslow Homer, William Morris Hunt, Eastman Johnson, and John La Farge, reveals the role he played in shaping American painting.
