Courbet in the four years following 1848. 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.
