Max Ernst lived here

Paris is a city of history. Plaques on nearly every house list famous occupants and you obtain quite the lesson just walking down the street. I wonder if anyone but tourists pay any attention to these signs.
One day while sightseeing we came upon this very grand house with lovely wooden gates and a plaque bearing the name of the artist Max Ernst.
It was in this house in Paris that he lived the remainder of his life after returning to France and where he passed away in 1976.
I love these courtyard type houses which are found all throughout the city. Gates and walls provide an outdoor room to seperate their occupants from the city, sort of like a foyer in an apartment.
There are many ways to live comfortably in the midst of a city through good planning and this just is one of them!
