The Meeting

Gustave_Courbet_-_Bonjour_Monsieur_Courbet_-_Musée_FabreBonjour, 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.

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.

"Gypsy Scene."

“Gypsy Scene.”

A peaceful morning cooking breakfast in the morning dew.  The caravan is obscured by the smoke of the campfire.
