The Rebellion for Female Body and Nude Concept by Gustave Courbet

25 Nov

Their bodies were always full of the breath of youth, which was shapely and strong as rural women in this art reproductions. Courbet’s aesthetic view was very different from that of romanticism paintings, forming a sharp contrast. But this was unacceptable for Courbet’s contemporaries. One critic terrified by the realistic nude of Courbet wrote: the hip of Venus in Ornan’s heart was very ugly.

In 1861  Gustave Courbet refuted the romantic beauty form which was commonly complied with. He wrote: The art of painting only depended on the performance of those touched objects; artist’s imagination lied in knowing to find the most complete performance for an existing object, but never the imagined or created object itself. Gustave Courbet did not try to let his model make poses and make beautiful movements. But behind her, he tried to show that he abandoned the romantic painting habits. She leaned on the diagonal lines of the painting, with right hand holding the branches, left hand into the waterfall, left leg placing in the body line and right leg holding back.  For more please visit
