Rue de Verneuil
Last week, whilst in Paris, I managed to visit Rue de Verneuil, Serge's Paris home. A very quiet sedate street filled with antique shops until you reach the end where you're confronted with a wall of graffiti dedicated (apart from the odd random tag) to Monsieur Gainsbourg. It's very easy to imagine Serge wandering back up that street, Gitane in hand, after a night out. Just behind that wall is the statue "L'Homme A Tete De Chou" as featured on the cover of the album of the same name.
I recognise the Johann Sfar drawing (top left) but if anyone can credit any of the other pieces I'd be most grateful.
