Summary The foremost painter in the realist style, Gustave Courbet was so caught up in experiencing life that he lost himself in it. Handsome, wealthy and acclaimed in his youth, he ended up old, poor and notorious in later life. These documentaries get to the heart of the artist and uncover what drove him to pursue the controversial style known as realism and diverge from the academy style that was the standard in mid-19th century France.
