RIP Manet and Debussy

manetThe Passy cemetery hides behind the high wall that borders Place du Trocadero to the southwest. It’s not very big and like all cemeteries I’ve visited in France (with the exception of the American military cemetery in Normandy), there’s precious little greenery.

  Instead what you find are gravestones, monuments, and masoleums side by each along gravel paths. For a small place, there’s a lot packed in here. There’s Manet (left), Debussy (right), and some weird 19th century art, romantic and a bit grotesque.

    My favourite cemetary in Paris in Père Lachaise Cemetery, who can forget seeing the tomb of Victor Noir. Great post though, thanks.
