Painted in the 1850s. Just in case we’re tempted to think the broken color and painterly surfaces of Impressionism sprang from nowhere.

Delicious surface! Do you think some of that may have been created by a palette knife?
That was my first guess, but I don’t know enough about Courbet’s techniques to make a really educated guess.
The answer is probably in the video demonstrated by Peter Zokosky.
