Adolphe Retté in Beaune, Côte-d'Or (21)

Description de cette image, également commentée ci-après
Adolphe Retté (1863-1930) was born in Paris and died in Beaune: he was a symbolist poet and an anarchist writer, although he converted to Catholicism in 1906, when he rejected almost all of his former works. The plaque below is on the house where he lived from 1924 until his death, and where he died in poverty. I was unable to find his grave in the cemetery in Beaune as it is huge, and gives no indication of its famous people buried there.
