Bonjour, Monsieur Courbet, 1854. Self portrait by Gustave Courbet (right). The Realist style here is a bit stiff for my taste but this is a fine image for 19th century clothing. Nice walking staff too.
Getting back to our theme of traveler’s, caravans, and other wanderers of the world… a few images from
Pascal Dagnan-Bouveret a French Naturalist Painter of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
“Dans la forêt-Musée des beaux-arts de Nancy.”
I believe I would enjoy siting around this campfire.
“Chevaux à l’abreuvoir.”
Once a common scene, now virtually lost in an era of loud, fume-belching machinery.
A peaceful morning cooking breakfast in the morning dew. The caravan is obscured by the smoke of the campfire.
