Tomb with a view

Top photo: A painting of a couple, both poets, peering out a window from their grave in a small Montmartre cemetery where mostly lesser known artists, writers and musicians repose.

A deserted tomb with no descendants to care for it stands amid more modern graves. The cemetery is built on a slope.

Grave of Dr. David Gruby, private physician to Vincent Van Gogh and his brother Theo when they lived in Montmartre. Frédéric Chopin, George Sand, Honoré de Balzac, Alexandre Dumas and Franz Liszt were also his patients.
