Author 'Chouna' (Id 187902 ) : 'To paint a country, you must know. I know my country, I paint it. These sous-bois, this is my home, this river, this is the Loue, these rocks are those of Ornans and the Puits noir. Go and see, and you'll find all my paintings '. Thus spoke Gustave Courbet when he talked of his native land. '
