Courbet/Not Courbet

The special exhibition Courbet and the Modern Landscape presents the perfect opportunity to explore unresolved attribution questions surrounding the late lanscape paintings of Gustave Courbet.  This small companion show will feature 10-12 late landscapes and related prints, the attribution of which continues to be debated by Courbet specialists.  After learning about Courbet's complex painting technique, visitors will be invited to draw their own distinctions between the master's touch and that of his followers and forgers.
