Just a stone's throw from La Liberté, a stele recalls the original location of Gustave Courbet's tomb in the old cemetery. Revolutionary in his life as well as in his art, the hero of Realism died on December 31, 1877, at the age of 58. The funeral, attended by more than 1,000 people, took place on 4 January 1878. The remains were transferred to Ornans in 1919.
