"... and, above all, I'm a realist. Realist means: a sincere lover of honest truth." so Courbet about himself. His pictures show a reality that borders on photographic accuracy. An accuracy that caused scandals and outrage in society. Courbet's depictions of the female body are not idealized and free from whitewashing. The offensive to the artist's nudes, however, was the depiction of a truly existing woman. The girl with the white stockings could be a neighbor of the beholder. Gone are the days of unclothed mythical figures, of the religious side effects and the image of women that arose in the minds of painters. Courbet's reality included landscapes as well as sensuality and lasciviousness. When he discovered both with an artistic eye, he captured the moment for art and created a homage to femininity. © Meisterdrucke
