|Gustave Courbet, After Dinner at Ornans, 1848, 76 7/8 x 101 1/8|
This painting that was submitted to the Salon of 1848 was received with mixed responses, some even said Courbet was dragging art thorough the gutter... He still received a metal for it and made his fame in Paris. Since he won an award, Courbet was able to exhibit his works without being judged on the next exhibit.
After this painting Courbet moved to Ornan to paint what is referred to as his 'breakthrough paintings'
