Gustave Courbet- Le Sommeil (The Sleepers)
Description:Related Content Biography Gustave Courbet was born in in in Ornans, a farming town in eastern France, into a closeknit family of the rural middle class. His happy childhood, spent in the woods and fields around Ornans, gave him a taste for the hunt and sport, a dislike for school, and a lifelong love of his native region. Having gone to Paris in , ostensibly to study law but already determined to become an artist, Courbet entered the studio of Charles Steuben , an academic teacher, from whom, as he later claimed, he learned nothing.
