All art is tribute in some sense—artists borrow, steal, reframe, and homage all work in their lineage, whether incidentally or not. Ideas meld, interact, grow, bloom, and die. So too do artists. And in their absence, tribute is made in another sense: grave stones and monuments. Here, other artists or fans can pay tribute to the once vibrant volley of ideas as well, even in death. And gravestones in themselves can be a kind of art, as Rodin and Rand have shown. Even if many of these happen to be in France, they all worth contemplating as the lasting testament to those they represent. This is Where the Graves of Famous Artists Are Located.
