A Short Portrait of a Romanian Cremationist

It's about Radu D. Rosetti (1874-1964) - poet, one of the best authors of epigrams in Romanian literature, a famous lawyer during the interwar period and also author of some travel books. According to George Calinescu, Radu D. Rosetti used, in the last years of his life, to sleep with the urn on his night table, expressing in this manner his adhesion to cremation. With Constantin I. Istrati, Grigore Trancu-Iasi, Mihai (Max) Popovici, C. Comanescu, V.I. Zorca and few others, too RADU D. ROSETTI had been one of the most important romanian cremationists. Unfortunately surfing on net I haven't found until now any picture of Radu D. Rosetti and for this reason I posted it.
