Important works


A bit of humour

From: [
Realism Now, by Linda Nochlin] Courbet was accused of painting objects just as one might encounter them, without any compositional linkage, and of reducing art to the indiscriminate reproduction of the first subject to come along. "He makes his stones as important as his stone breakers", complained one outraged critic of the eponymous painting. Well, I should certainly hope so! As we all know eponoymouse can spread to all sorts of things if this sort of thing isn't sorted out and stopped here-to-with a-fore-foot.
