Cimetière parisien de Thiais, Val-de-Marne (94), Île-de-France #10: Jean-Jacques Krafft

Jean-Jacques Krafft (1910–97) was a sculptor who worked in various materials, but particularly in wood in his later years.  He spent much of his time in the 12th arrondissement, and is noted for both his religious and his nude works.

This is the last of the graves I noted in Thiais. Again, I thank H. for helping us so much with our searches, and he has recently informed me that the prolific English writer Peter de Polnay (1906–1984) is also buried in this cemetery: we shall be back next year!
