Gustave Courbet (1819-1877), « l’enfant d’Ornans », est un peintre français.  Il est issu d’une famille de propriétaires terriens d’Ornans (Franche-Comté). Il étudie les Beaux-Arts à Besançon, puis le Droit à Paris. Il étudie aussi les maîtres de l’Ecole espagnole du 17e siècle au Louvre. Il sera influencé par Géricault. Admiratif du clair-obscur hollandais, de la sensualité vénitienne et du réalisme espagnol, Courbet deviendra le maître de l’Ecole Realiste.  #peinture #france #courbet
