1876-1944

of jewish origin, he was a poet, writer and painter, and, as wikipedia says, an important link between symbolists and surrealists. He felt attracted by men and often by alcohol. In Montmartre he lived in Bâteau Lavoir and eventually he shared a room with Picasso. He participated at the famous Rousseau Banquet and as soon this was over went to the Lapin Agile, his arms like those of Picasso around Ferande's shoulders and firing with his pistol into the air as he used to do. To the funeral of Picasso's lover Eva Gödel he came drunk and tried to seduce a chauffeur (as wikipedia says). He had a vison and saw virgin Mary and Jesus. Jesus! For the Gestapo he was still a jew and was deported to Drancy, were he died in the year I was born.
