Gustave Courbet's L'Origine du Monde was commissioned by Turkish diplomat and art collector Halil Serif Pasha, also known as Khalil Bey, who hid the painting from the world until its auction in 1868. Many of the later owners of the act kept it inaccessible to visitors. This circumstance, and its scandalous motive of an exposed human vulva at the time, made the painting a kind of myth that many hear but few have truly seen. However, the title of the painting suggests that Courbet was essentially about honoring the female sex as the source of every human being and the true creative power of the world. © Meisterdrucke
