Courbet believed in painting real people at their everyday activities. Here, the subject is his own studio, showing off the new role of the artist in society. On the left are the ordinary models, on the right friends (writers George Sand and Charles Baudelaire are identifiable). Courbet, the artist, takes centre stage in sharp daylight. Vel
