Poor Jean Seberg. I have a rare copy of her biography, "Played Out," and I'm one of the editors of her wikipedia article.


You hit the jackpot, RICHARD!!!!!
That is my favorite grave in the whole world! I discovered it on my first visit to Montparnasse Cemetery (2001) and I have made a pilgrimage to it on each return visit.
Not to question your research, but I wonder how you determined that it was a Tinguely sculpture? Since the quote at the bottom is signed Niki - I just assumed that it was the work of Niki de Saint Phalle.
One of these days I hope to be able to spend longer than a week in Paris and devote the extra time to do some research regarding who Jacques was.
A plus tard,
PS - here in Cincinnati, I'm a docent at Spring Grove Cemetery ( and along with Eye Prefer Paris, is in my Top 10 favs.
