Amazing location to dwell through a huge spectrum of inspiring people. Finding the graves is like an Easter egg hunt. If you don’t feel like an Easter egg hunt, check the grave map before.

4/ 5

You might think it's creepy to visit a cemetery, especially if you're from a different city or country right !? Believe it or not, as we researched Paris prior to our trip, the cemetery came up a couple of times. Paris (and Prague to give another example) have way more tombstones with lots of history dating back to WW1 & WW2. It demonstrates the tragedies that a war can cause. At the Montparnasse cemetery, you can pick up a “Map” at the entrance, which lists where famous were buried. This is where French singer Serge Gainsbourg's remains lie. You might remember him from his song "Bonnie and Clyde" with Brigitte Bardot. You will also find lots of monuments, pieces of art, beautiful gardens and flowers. Who knows, maybe you'll discover one of your ancestors there, think about it! Our Ratings Serge: 4+ Eli: 4 Recommend: it's free to visit, so why not?

5/ 5

Constantin Brâncuși (Romanian: [konstanˈtin brɨŋˈkuʃʲ] (About this sound listen); February 19, 1876 – March 16, 1957) was a Romanian sculptor, painter and photographer who made his career in France. Considered a pioneer of modernism, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th-century, Brâncuși is called the patriarch of modern sculpture. As a child he displayed an aptitude for carving wooden farm tools. Formal studies took him first to Bucharest, then to Munich, then to the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris from 1905 to 1907. His art emphasizes clean geometrical lines that balance forms inherent in his materials with the symbolic allusions of representational art. Brâncuși sought inspiration in non-European cultures as a source of primitive exoticism, as did Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, André Derain and others. However, other influences emerge from Romanian folk art traceable through Byzantine and Dionysian traditions.[1] Constantin Brâncuși, Portrait of Mademoiselle Pogany [1], 1912, White marble; limestone block, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia. Exhibited at the 1913 Armory Show. Brâncuși grew up in the village of Hobiţa, Gorj, near Târgu Jiu, close to Romania's Carpathian Mountains, an area known for its rich tradition of folk crafts, particularly woodcarving. Geometric patterns of the region are seen in his later works. His parents Nicolae and Maria Brâncuși were poor peasants who earned a meager living through back-breaking labor; from the age of seven, Constantin herded the family's flock of sheep. He showed talent for carving objects out of wood, and often ran away from home to escape the bullying of his father and older brothers. At the age of nine, Brâncuși left the village to work in the nearest large town. At 11 he went into the service of a grocer in Slatina; and then he became a domestic in a public house in Craiova where he remained for several years. When he was 18, Brâncuși created a violin by hand with materials he found around his workplace. Impressed by Brâncuși's talent for carving, an industrialist entered him in the Craiova School of Arts and Crafts (școala de arte și meserii), where he pursued his love for woodworking, graduating with honors in 1898.[2] He then enrolled in the Bucharest School of Fine Arts, where he received academic training in sculpture. He worked hard, and quickly distinguished himself as talented. One of his earliest surviving works, under the guidance of his anatomy teacher, Dimitrie Gerota, is a masterfully rendered écorché (statue of a man with skin removed to reveal the muscles underneath) which was exhibited at the Romanian Athenaeum in 1903.[3] Though just an anatomical study, it foreshadowed the sculptor's later efforts to reveal essence rather than merely copy outward appearance.
