An intimate museum featuring works of Courbet, mainly portraits, landscapes and early works. None of his most controversial pieces are here or his large canvasses. But the museum does a good job explaining the progression of his work, the role politics played in his life, and his place in art history. A nice audio/visual presentation talks about his large canvass work focusing on "Funeral at Ornans". The museum is located on the Loue's River in the pleasant village of Ornans. Wander through the small central district afterwards. There are some nice bakeries and chocolate shops.
