We were raised from a young age, we first learned how to say hello. Parents always tell their children, say Hello to sisters and brothers; when entering the school gate, students must first say hello to the teacher in class. How to greet others, after growing up, I know there are many ways. Just like the French painting "The Meeting", there is a hidden mystery. In the 19th century in France, the absolute class, nobles were higher than ordinary people, and paintings were only limited to religious or historical subjects to have a market, only depicting daily encounters in the French countryside, which shocked the world.

A greeting, showing the avant-garde, the arrogant figure in the painting is the banner design painter himself Gustave Courbet. When Courbet greeted the nobles, he humiliated the leader of the rice class in public, with a simple daily response, arrogance and satire on the bourgeoisie. The painting is also known as "Bonjour Monsieur Courbet". Alfred Bruyas, the number one fan and patron of food, wanted to have a painting to show himself and his beloved artist, but Courbet was not happy, believing that this challenged his creative autonomy. In fact, Courbet deliberately painted more servants and dogs that he hated. From the beards, gloves, expressions, and even the shadows, the painter concealed his heart against the bourgeoisie and hated the rich, so as to show the truth in his mind. ideal. "The Meeting" records that Courbet went to the south of France, namely Montpellier, to visit Alfred Bruyas, the master of the rice class, and met unexpectedly on the country road, as well as his servant Calas and his dog. Meeting in the warm sunshine of early summer, the vision carriage gradually moved away.
