Painter Gustave Courbet, a master of realist art, died in exile in Switzerland at La Tour de Peilz on 31 December 1877. His remains were not returned to Ornans, his birthplace, until 1919 in near anonymity. Some of his paintings were too "crude" and his anti-clericalism, his participation in the events of the Commune and his alleged responsibility for the fall of the Vendôme column are still present in people's minds: Gustave Courbet is consigned to the purgatory of artists.

In Ornans, however, initiatives were taken to revalue his work, but it was not until 1971 that a museum was dedicated to him in his native town.

Based on numerous unpublished documents, this book is the first volume in a series devoted to the rehabilitation of Courbet, which aims to reconsider the artist's work and its reception, both in France and abroad.
