A great overview, especially for 10$. The reproductions were of a high quality and the text was pretty good too. The only thing lacking was close-ups of the work so you could see the painting technique which I'd have really liked.

This book presented Courbet's motivation for his art. It also gave some biographical information about Courbet as someone involved in politics in France during the late 19th Century, and not just his role as an artist. I recommend this book for anyone who wants an introduction to Courbet and to Impressionism and what lead to this era in art.
