What does the website of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art state about this 19th century artwork made by Gustave Courbet? (© - by The Metropolitan Museum of Art - The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

Courbet often painted the rocky grotto at the source of the Loue, the river that flows through his native village, Ornans, in the Franche-Comté region of eastern France. This view is probably one of four he mentioned to the dealer Luquet in the spring of 1864, when he wrote: "I've been to the source of the Loue these last days and made four landscapes about 1 meter 40."
