The Grave of Raymond Isidore, aka Picassiette, Hauts-de-Chartres, Chartres, Eure-et-Loir (28)

As an article in the local paper L'Echo Républicain says, many people know where Raymond Isidore's (or Picassiette's) house is, but not where he's buried, which is in the Cimetière Saint-Chéron (where he worked as a sweeper), just a few hundred metres from the Maison Picassiette, and the grave (which of course is also that of his wife Adrienne) has relatively recently been renovated. An interesting fact is that his grave is within sight of the cathedral in Chartres, the place he represented so many times in his art.
