courtbet’s other famous painting was the origin of the world, which he painted while in the middle of the production of the stone breakers. it is well-known that the original of the painting was lost, and only a copy was ever exhibited. the painting portrays earth before man. the scene is a desert, on which are depicted the four elements: fire, air, water, and earth. the two men depicted are representing the souls of the two worlds, and the two opposite forces, or rather two nations, at war. courbet felt that he had achieved a certain perfection in the painting, and it was exhibited in the salon of 1854. he originally offered it to the french government, but they refused to accept it on the grounds that its subject was not in the spirit of the revolution, which had set forth to liberate all people.
courbet’s painting the confession (1863) is one of the most powerful and original in his entire body of work. he painted it after his so-called “impressionist” period, but had it exhibited in the salon of 1863 under the title the confession (a reference to mme. courbet’s desire for a child). the painting depicts the interior of an uninhabited house in an empty landscape. in the foreground the windows of the house are open, and two people, presumably husband and wife, can be seen in the room. above the door hangs a bouquet of flowers. the painting shows the following: 1. a prison for a woman who has confessed to being unfaithful; 2. the point of contention between a husband and wife; 3. the helplessness of a woman; 4. the need for a child. courbet aimed to show a truth of nature that no person can ignore, or ever will forget.
courbet’s most important works date from the 1850s. after 1853 he abandoned his studio and painted only in the fields around and in the village of ornans. he was also influenced by the pre-raphaelites, and produced pictures such as the milkmaid, and the birth of the world. these works were not as well-received as his earlier pictures, and he ceased painting in 1856. the last three years of his life were spent in france, austria, and germany. in 1870, when the commune was established, he returned to france and became a member of the government of national defense. he died three months later, and was buried in a cemetery in ornans.
courbet was in the minority of 1871 in his view that the role of the artist was to express his or her vision of reality. in april of that year, the commune decreed that all artists should now display their work in the salons of the academy, and should not be allowed to exhibit at the salon. this was a blow to courbet, and he was forced to move his painting from the salon of 1871, and from 1872 onwards he never exhibited at the salon.
his most important works from the commune include the dead peasant and the stone breakers. the dead peasant was exhibited in paris in 1874 and was reproduced in some of courbet’s exhibition catalogues. the popularity of this painting may be due to the fact that it depicts a dead man, in a realistic manner, lying in a bed of flowers. he has a pained look on his face, a pensive and thoughtful look. he appears unselfconscious, and as though he is at peace with himself and his fate. the painting is realistic, yet seems to have a timeless quality, evoking the moment of death. it is the subject of the painting that is timeless, and the appearance of the figure is the painterly equivalent of the moment of death.
