Overview

Meet Gustave Courbet at the National Gallery in Oslo.

For most art museums, it is a challenge to distinguish forgeries from authentic pictures. In particular, many popular French painters fell victim to widespread forgery after their deaths. It has been said of Gustave Courbet that of the 500 pictures he painted, around 5,000 are now in foreign collections. Thanks to new research, it has been possible in recent years to throw light on many false attributions and to expose a number of counterfeits.

The work Pêcheur à la ligne ('The Fisherman') was donated to the National Museum as a supposedly genuine Courbet in 1947. But French experts cast doubt on the authenticity of the picture. Recent research on the provenance of the picture seems, however, to point in the opposite direction: in all probability Pêcheur à la ligne was indeed painted by the master himself. The exhibition Under the microscope. Gustave Courbet shows you how the museum reached this conclusion.
