Paris shone brightly in the second half of the 19th century, with its fashionable restaurants, cabarets and theatres, which provided the spectacle of a carefree society. The Industrial Revolution produced wealth, and fortunes were amassed and lost. Gustave Courbet's work "The Artist's Studio" is politically involved and provocative, revealing his support for revolutionary movements and condemning Napoleon III's authoritarian regime. In addition to its critical dimension, the canvas has an air of mystery, and depicts contradictions. This film examines Courbet's artistic development, contributions to Realism, challenge to the hierarchy of genre, and response to social and political events of his time.
