Jean-Baptiste Madou Jean-Baptiste Madou

Plaque: Jean-Baptiste Madou

Here stood the house that J. B. Madou, artist-painter, lived in from 1864 to 1877.

Original inscription:

ICI S'ELEVAIT LA MAISON
QUE
J B MADOU
ARTISTE - PEINTRE
HABITA DE 1864 A 1877

What a lovely idea, on the plaque, where normally there is a head of the commemorated person, to give a drawing of the house that used to be here. The picture of the house enables you to decide whether you prefer the house that was there, or the building that IS there. Tough.
