2013 book, Courbet: Mapping Realism, page 30 says in august 1846 he headed for Amsterdam i guess per wisselingh’s invite the year before and on the way he’d stayed in ghent for 3 or 4 days at the home of Papeians de Morchoven family, and then on the way back in aug 1847 stayed 8-10 days in ghent again. note says 1844 in belgium too. The little 2 notes are a review of a short 1984 article in an art magazine, by Klaus Herding and Katharina Schmidt., Master Drawing 22 no. 4

About kathyfoshay

I'm all alone with the real end of the world and always looking for assistance and no one's ever contacted me from the hundreds of letters I'd sent while at the big homeless shelter, 2nd and D Streets, NW, as though anyone that tries to contact me gets disappeared, my life used as a LURE-gimmick that goes to how that Armageddon prophecy in that book of Revelation has been being snuck-through, and this is sort of the bottom of the barrel of ideas for trying to find assistance, thinking I could get all my various writings on this in one place that letter-recipients could then look up if they're interested. That means I'd have to see if I can send my emails to here, how to do that. Wordpress said there is a way but it entails that spam would also get the email address. My time for now it up I guess. Working in this sitting position isn't healthy for me but I've always got to be doing something toward trying to get hold of someone to help me. It's like I'm a microcosm of the Earth or the human race and if someone could help me out of this torture then that'd be a start on trying to get the whole Earth out of this. 5/1/17, still all this, etc., same situation. (7/14/18 now....) Now it's 2019.
