Gustave Courbet Quote

I painted the very people who had been present at the interment, all the townspeople.


Courbet pictured with his painting 'A Burial at Ornans' (1849/50) the funeral of his grand uncle which he attended in September 1848. People who attended the funeral became the models for the painting; no professional models
