Cimetière de Passy #2: Francis de Croisset

Francis de Croisset (1877 – not 1876 as on the tomb – to 1937) was born Franz Weiner in Belgium and moved to Paris in 1897, choosing the name 'Croisset' because of its associations with Flaubert. He sought scandal through his plays, was frequently in the newspapers, and was the inspiration behind Proust's Bloch and Jacques du Roszier. On marrying he moved to Grasse, although he spent his final years in Paris.
