FRANCE-LIFESTYLE-ART-PAINTING-COURBET

Jean-Jacques Fernier, French painting expert especially of Courbet, poses in his office on February 11, 2013 in Paris, with a reproduction of the allegedly head of the model of the French artist Gustave Courbet's painting (1819-1877) 'L'Origine du Monde' (The Origin of the World). Fernier believes he has solved the mystery of the model in a celebrated 19th century painting as a result of an art lover's 1,400 euro antique shop purchase that could turn out to be worth 40 million euros ($53.6 million), weekly Paris Match reported on February 7, 2013.
