The Meeting (Bonjour Monsieur Courbet), 1854 – Gustave Courbet, la rencontre bonjour monsieur courbet.

In this large work Courbet painted himself meeting Alfred Bruyas, a key patron and supporter. The painting expresses the collector’s appreciation of the genius of Courbet. As an extension of Bruyas, the servant is caught in the greatest gesture of respect, but the key point is this moment of mutual appreciation between artist and patron. As expressions of great intellect and importance, Courbet’s head is tilted back slightly and he is the one standing directly in unfiltered light.
