Gustave Courbet was born to a prosperous farming
family in Ornans, France. In 1841 he went to
Paris to study law, but he soon decided to study
painting and learned by copying the pictures of
master artists. In 1844 he exhibited his
self-portrait, Courbet with a Black Dog.
Courbet's realism and truthful portrayal of
ordinary places and people went against the taste
of art critics and the public who were accustomed
to pretty pictures that made life look better
than it was. When his painting, The Artist's
Studio, was refused for an important exhibition,
he displayed his work himself near the exhibition

(Fauvist meaning Wild Beasts). This was a style
of painting that focused on pure colors used in
an aggressive and direct manner.
Throughout his career, his style changed,
but he maintained his commitment to art well into
his eighties when his body had been taken over
by cancer. At this late age, he invented
Papercuttings, for which he is well known.

relationship between color and shape, this
helped earn him the name, Master of Color.

Edgar Degas 1834-1917
aux Courses en Province
(At the Races in the Country),
Degas was born into a well-to-do banking family
on July 19, 1834, in Paris. He studied at the
École des Beaux-Arts under a disciple of the
famous French classicist J. A. D. Ingres, where
Degas developed the great drawing ability that
was to be a salient characteristic of his art.
After 1865, under the influence of the budding
Impressionist movement, he gave up academic
subjects to turn to contemporary themes. Unlike
the Impressionists, he preferred to work in the
studio and was uninterested in the study of
natural light that fascinated them. He was
attracted by theatrical subjects, and most of his
works depict racecourses, theaters, cafés, music
halls, or boudoirs.

Vincent Van Gogh
Born 1853 in Zundert, Netherlands Died 1890
Vincent Van Gogh 1853-1890
Corridor in the Asylum 1889

Van Gogh was not ready to accept his truthful and
emotionally morbid way of depicting his art
subjects. His internal storm is clearly seen in
most of his paintings. It is what set the stage
and direction for a new style of painting called
Expressionism. Its characterized by the use of
symbols and a style that expressed the artist's
inner feelings about his subject.
After living with his prostitute for 2 years, Van
Gogh ended up once again living by himself.
Theo, his brother, gave him an allowance of 100
francs a month. When he finally moved into a
house of his own he had another painter named
Paul live with him. One night when Paul had gone
out, Van Gogh followed and threatened him with a
knife. When he got home, he felt guilty, so he
took a razor and cut his ear off, latter sending
it to his ex-prostitute as a gift.
In Vincent Van Gogh's own words, "What lives in
art and is eternally living, is first of all the
painter, and then the painting."
