The aim of this book is to show how Courbet's wholesale recasting of the terms and ambitions of moder art, in paintings like The Stonebreakers and A Burial at Ornans, was bound up with the texture of French history at a fateful moment - the battle of pamphlets and images being wages in the countryside in 1849-50, the search for a means to connect with a 'popular' audience, the deepening enigma of peasant politics, and the confusions and dangers of class. Pictorial cardwraps. B/w and colour illustrations. ISBN: 050027245X. Spine faded. Covers a little scuffed.
