Among Courbet's all unlimited talents, the most exceptional was that he could turn barbaric affairs into elegant paintings. And these paintings tightly gripped our eyes, and got a space in the western painting altar. For example, this theme was so vulgar and frivolous, drawing a plump nude sitting on the ground and falsely teasing her poodle. Her left arm held its fluffy melt back and her mouth was ready to kiss the dog. Italian painter Titian had painted numerous nudes who bravely fell in love with different gods. Although the gods appeared in different forms like the angel, the swan or the bull, it would never be a poodle.
On the other side, Courbet was regarded as the regeneration of Jean-Honore Fragonard who was a French painter in 18th century. Fragonard was good at showing the Rococo art themes, such as the girl that happily playing with the dog. Therefore, Courbet's works had also been classified as the Rococo revival which was popular in second Reich period. Such revival also influenced Renoir ad Monet who changed the old pastoral and pure landscape style into the contemporary French style painting. But Courbet still adhered to grasping the most popular portrait style and presented favorable evidence to those former generation artists. In fact, the actress's face and body was not the standard beauty-Venus which was traditionally accepted. Courbet took his friend Leontine Renaud as the model. Her brown hair was fleeciness and messy, with a fat body and dark grey color tone. Courbet mocked all the beauty standards both from ancient and modern and replaced it by the real and sensible scene in real life. The last vulgar reveal was that she tilted her toes and showed the light orange feet board, like turning the beautiful naked statues of Ingres and Cabanel into the original clay prototype.
