Catalogue Note

Painted circa 1871-72, the present work dates from the period of Courbet's incarceration in the Sainte-Pélagie prison in Paris, as punishment for his involvement in the Paris Commune. In his expertise on the work, Jean-Jacques Fernier speculates that although dated 1871, it may in fact have been painted on Courbet's release in April 1872, its spontaneous execution on an unprepared panel bearing witness to his imprisonment.
