Notes

Summary:
Courbet ,who in his pictures constantly examined himself and his artistry, often re-worked his portraits according to his moods and viewpoints, and it is possible that the painful separation from his lover in the years between 1851-54 prompted "The Wounded Man". He sees himself as wounded by heartache and abandoned in a twilit landscape.One can hardly overlook the similarity between his figure and that of Christ. Identifying with Christ gave the artist the possibility of expressing his status as that of a pariah fired by an ideal, as one burdened with insight in an uncomprehending society.
