Bellefontaine Cemetery, Summer 2020

Bellefontaine Cemetery has been a welcome respite this summer with so many other places closed. The self-guided tour is a great way to spend some time safely.

James Eads’s monument looks very much like Verrocchio’s design for Piero and Giovanni de Medici’s sarcophagus in the Old Sacristy at San Lorenzo in Florence. Leonardo da Vinci also incorporated that design into his Annunciation from 1472.
