This Toys On Safari LEGO Portrait is based on French Realist, Gustav Courbet’s “The Desperate Man.”(1843-1845)
In the words of Courbet, ”To be in a position to translate the customs, the ideas, the appearance of my time, according to my own estimation; to be not only a painter, but a man as well; in short, to create living art—this is my goal.”
This original re-interpretation of Courbet’s self portrait, is a 2 in. x 3 in. original watercolor, matted and framed in a 3-3/4 in x 4-3/4 in wooden frame with backer desktop stand.
