Cimetière du Montparnasse

IMG_9284.JPGMontparnasse is known for its mixture of art and high living and still remains dear to the intellectual and artistic crowd with the likes of La Coupole in the neighbourhood.
Mount Parnassus was dedicated to Apollo, god of poetry, music and beauty…I say that Montparnasse is aptly named.

This is the smallest of the city’s resting places and has gathered some of the much loved Paris artistic community.
Man Ray and the surprising simple stone for the Russian born sculptor Zadkine lie here.
A charming moment to see the power of hands with a grandfather telling his granddaughter about some of the permanent residents…
