Episode #53: Shock Art: Courbet's The Origin of the World (Season 5, Episode 7)

ArtCurious Podcast

Works that we take for granted today as masterpieces, or as epitomes of the finest of fine art, could also have been considered ugly, of poor quality, or just bad when they were first made. With the passage of time comes a calm and an acceptance. But that doesn’t change the fact that there are many works peppered throughout art history that were straight-up shocking to the public when they were first presented decades, or even hundreds of years ago. Today's work of "shock art:" Courbet’s The Origin of the World. Please  SUBSCRIBE and REVIEW our show on Apple Podcasts!
