Gustave Courbet was born in La Vallée de la Loue (Loue Valley) in Franche-Comté on June 10th 1819 .He studied in Besançon and Paris. His family wanted him to study law but he preferred drawing and painting. He spent a lot of his time in museums copying a huge amount of paintings and eventually stopped studying law. He was politically involved in La Commune and was attributed the destruction of La Colonne Vandôme.
He liked saying “Courbet sans les courbettes”.It means that he was a very straightforward person with a lot of personality- at times, too much!He wrote many interesting pamphlets and letters to explain his viewpoints about painting. He didn’t want to work for the Académie des Beaux-Arts and refused any type of promotion linked to the government because he wanted to be a free “thinker”.
He had a son who died when he was 25 years old .
He was condemned by the French government and put in prison. He died in exile in Switzerland on December 31st 1877. The debate about his responsibility or the absence of responsibility in the destruction of the Column is still going on.
