Homage to Gustave Courbet, French

realistic painter of the 19th century.

The University Theater of Franche-Comté is an association founded in 1986. For more than 30 years, it has defended the idea that artistic practice, cultural openness, international and associative commitment contribute to enrich the outlook on the world, sharpen the critical thinking and build thought.

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Gustave Courbet’s birth, the Theatre has set up a street play, performed by university students in Montrapon district (Besançon). Spectators were then invited to stroll through empty wood frames, as open windows on the path of a passionate, free and committed artist.

The graphic project focuses on a 4-metre long canvas. A part of Courbet’s iconic paintings end up in the same composition. A revisited self-portrait that invites you to discover the pictorial universe of the painter.
