While seldom discussed in contemporary times, 19th century Gallic painter Gustave Courbet (1819-1877) singlehandedly built the aesthetic movement known as realism, which brought him seemingly limitless acclaim and wealth and put his name on the cultural map in Europe. In time, however, Courbet's popularity diminished, to be replaced by inescapable notoriety and substantial poverty. Throughout, Courbet made no apologies for cutting against the grain of the aesthetic status quo. Romain Goupil's eponymous biographical documentary of the artist profiles his life, times, and approach to the craft of painting, and asks what prompted him to hone such a unique style. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
