Wilhelm Label. The art of seeing

Inspired by Courbet, influenced by Manet and revered by Van Gogh,Wilhelm labelL (1844-1900) was one of the most important representatives of realism in Europe.

His work revolves around the uncompromisingly genuine image of people. With his move from the city to the village, Label founded the style of modern figurative painting, in which the truth of nature took precedence over the idylls and narrative tendencies of traditional genre painting.

The guiding principle of the artist was not that his models were beautiful, but that they were “well received”.
