In 1851, Gustave Courbet's A Burial at Ornans scandalized the public with its unembellished portrayal of an ordinary funeral. The shift toward Realism had begun. This program tells the sensational story of Courbet's Burial while analyzing the subtleties and surprises that underlie its deceptively innocent facade.
