Visconti - division 4 in Pere-Lachaise then and now

Ennius Quirnus Visconti (1751-1818) and his son Louis Tullien Joachim Visconti (1791-1853). An Italian archeologist, Ennius was curator of the Capitoline Museum in Rome before supervising the antiquities room at the Louvre. He was originally buried in what is now division 10 but removed to division 4 next to his son, architect and designer Louis Tullien. Louis designed many Parisian buildings and squares, including the Place Saint Sulpice, but is perhaps most well-known for designing the tomb of Napoleon at Les Invalides.

Monument aux morts division 4 Pere-Lachaise and Paul-Albert Bartholome (1848–1928) division 4 Pere-Lachaise

Said to be inspired by the death of his wife (1895), this incredible group of sculptures was created by Paul-Albert Bartholome (1848–1928), who is buried just a few meters away (see below), also in division 4. He also created the monument to Rousseau in the Panthéon as well as the monuments to Dubufe in division 10 and Meilhac and Pam, both in Montmartre Cemetery (division 21 and 3 respectively).
