Notes

Summary:
One of the most notoriously graphic portraits of all time, is Courbet's The Origin of the World, a full-frontal legs-spread record of a woman's torso from her breasts to her thighs. Courbet, who had a brilliantly and bluntly Realist style, was possibly the only artist alive who would, or could, have painted this unblinking portrait.
