|The grave of Edouard Manet, 1883, Passy Cemetery, Paris|
|Plain and simple--respectful without a hint of pomposity.|
|The tomb of Raphael|
|Florence's Basilica of Santa Croce. Besides Michelangelo, the|
church also houses the tombs of Galileo, Dante, Machiavelli, Foscolo,
Gentile, Ghiberti, Rossini, Guglielmo Marconi, and Enrico Fermi.
|It doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside, along with its artists' tombs, "The Frari" (as it's called by the locals) houses hundreds of millions of dollars worth of religious masterpieces.|
|The sculptor of the famous Kiss, chose instead a bronze copy of|
his even more famous, The Thinker for his tomb , placed in front of the Rodin Museum just outside Paris. (It is one of twenty in the world).
|Besides literally thousands of his own paintings which|
remained at his death in 1973, Picasso also owned works
by Chardin, Corot, Courbet, Renoir, Gauguin, Vuillard,
Rousseau, Matisse, Braque, Miró, Modigliani and Cézanne.
|Perhaps the most modest of all, the grave of Andy|
Warhol, near Pittsburgh, was financed by his heirs.
Rather than flowers, admirers leave cans of soup
on his grave.
