Weeky Photo Challenge – Silent as the………..

ARCHITECTURE, art, churches, FRANCE, photography, redstuffdan, weekly photo challenge

I discovered that one of my favourite artists of all time spent his last days at Chateau Malromé which is a few miles from our house. Henri Toulouse Lautrec returned to his Mothers chateau in 1901 where at the age of 36 he died from complications due to alcoholism and syphilis. He is buried in Cimetière de Verdelais a few kilometres from the estate. The cemetry is quite small and sits on a hillside adjacent to the magnificent Basilique Notre-Dame de Verdelais, it is very tranqil and extraordinarily peaceful.
