This gallery, hung with paintings from the peak of Courbet's career in the 1850s and 1860s, highlights the artist's versatility and invention as a portraitist. From his portrayal of the dashing tenor Louis Gueymard to his depiction of the demure Madame Auguste Cuoq, Courbet captured the personalities of his sitters with inimitable directness.
Courbet's work in other genres can be seen in Gallery 811 and Gallery 812.
