Gustave Courbet

Гюстав Курбе
Artist: Gustave Courbet (1819–1877) Alternative names: Jean Désiré Gustave Courbet French sculptor, painter and draughtsman Work location: Paris (1840), Normandy (1841), Netherlands (1846), Germany (1846), Switzerland (1846), Ornans, Montpellier, Étretat (1865), Trouville-sur-Mer (1865), Deauville (1866), Honfleur (between 1850 and 1860), Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer (1867), Switzerland (1873) Depicted people: Gustave Courbet Title: The Cellist (Self-portrait) Object type: Painting Description: Courbet painted many self-portraits. In the course of the 19th century, self-portraits became increasingly popular. In art circles in Paris, they played a key role in defining the self-image of artists of the era, and in launching artists’ careers on the increasingly competitive art market. In his early self-portraits, Courbet often appears as various theatrical characters – here he is seen in a melancholic, dreamy pose. When The Cellist was shown at the Paris Salon in 1848, the critics noted a resemblance between the claire-obscure of this painting and Rembrandt’s self-portraits.

St Paul the Hermit

Хосе де Рибера
Artist: Workshop of José de Ribera (1591–1652) Alternative names: Spagnoletto, Jusepe de Ribera Spanish painter Work location: Valencia, Naples, Rome Title: St Paul the Hermit Description: Paul of Thebaid was considered the first of the hermits of Egypt – men and women who, to escape persecution as Christians in the 3rd century, chose a life of solitude for the sake of contemplation and asceticism. According to tradition, Paul remained in the desert for almost ninety years, wearing only a garment of woven palm leaves and subsisting on fruit and bread. Edifying images of the hermits’ lives, expressing the value of penitence, were popular subjects in counter-reformation art. Ribera’s portrayal demonstrates a rare understanding of Caravaggio’s lesson. The depicted moment represents the story’s emotional climax, Paul’s ecstatic vision and mystic communion with God, symbolised by the light. The saint’s pose, with its reference to the crucified Christ, indicates his willingness to heed Christ’s call to follow him. His emaciated body is rendered with intransigent realism, every anatomical defect scrupulously transcribed. This stands in sharp contrast to the intense spirituality that radiates from his face. By working with a live model, the artist created an intensely human hero, a modern Saint Paul, and thus established an accessible role model for the faithful to emulate. Date: 1644 Medium: Oil on canvas Dimensions: Height: 208 cm (81.9 in). Width: 157 cm (61.8 in). Framed: Height: 232 cm (91.3 in). Width: 186 cm (73.2 in). Depth: 9 cm (3.5 in). Inscriptions (Swedish): Signerad: Jusepe de Ribera espanol F.A. 1644
