  • View of Ornans, probably mid–1850s
    Gustave Courbet (French, 1819–1877)
    Oil on canvas; 28 3/4 x 36 1/4 in. (73 x 92.1 cm)
    Bequest of Alice Tully, 1993 (1995.537)

    This landscape, probably painted in the mid-1850s, stands at the beginning of a long series of views of the countryside of the artist's native town. It may be identified by the distinctive church steeple that rises above the cluster of houses along the banks of the river Loue. The cliff in the distance is the Roche du Mont. The bridge traditionally has been identified as that of the town of Scey-en-Varais, located a few miles downstream from Ornans.
