Personalities

Ornans is the birthplace of the French realist painter, Gustave Courbet (1819 - 1877). One of Courbet's most famous paintings is Burial at Ornans, which records the burial of his great uncle in September 1848. Courbet's painting depicted actual people who had attended the funeral and were used as models for the painting.

The mathematician and instrument maker Pierre Vernier, after whom the eponymous scale is named, is also a native of this small town.
