The Most Arrogant Man in France: Gustave Courbet and the Nineteenth-Century Media Culture

Princeton University Press, 2007

The Most Arrogant Man in France- Gustave Courbet and the Nineteenth-Century Media Culture Petra T. Chu, Ph.D.
Department of Communication and the Arts

In this insightful book, Chu (who edited and translated Gustave Courbet's letters) examines how the painter (1819–1877) used the press to market his work. Chu's brilliant study of Courbet's paintings and marketing strategies sheds much light on his work and the artistic milieu of the 19th century.
