The Wounded Man (French: L'Homme blessé) is an 1844–1854 self-portrait by Gustave Courbet. Courbet is painted himself in a romantic theme as a suffering heroic man. Originally, there was a woman leaning on the artist's shoulder. She has been replaced by a sword at the end of a love affair, in 1854. He also added a red bloodstain on his shirt. That creates a contrast, because the calm face expression isn't reflecting his bleeding.
