Description

This book deals with the theme of landscape in a transversal way, by presenting a set of important works by Gustave Courbet (mainly from the collections of the Gustave Institute and the Courbet d'Ornans Museum) and other 19th century artists - collaborators or friends of Courbet - who have fully embraced nature and the landscape, putting them at the heart of their artistic approaches. Among other things, will be revealed the involvement of Saint-Claude's George Besson (1882- 1971), who worked for the acquisition of Courbet's birthplace - which would later house the museum - then that of Guy Bardone (1927-2015), donor of the collection preserved by the Abbey Museum, who would then be General Secretary of the Courbet Institute for nearly 15 years. Text in English and French.
