    Gustave Courbet (French, 1819–1877)
    Oil on canvas; 47 1/4 x 29 1/4 in. (120 x 74.3 cm)
    H. O. Havemeyer Collection, Bequest of Mrs. H. O. Havemeyer, 1929 (29.100.58)

    Courbet's The Source, painted in a naturalistic style and devoid of the trappings of academic allegory, may have been a response to Ingres's La Source (1856; Musée d'Orsay, Paris), which was exhibited at the Galerie Martinet in 1861. Courbet's version is thought to date to 1862.
