This is one of the many wreaths I post on my Facebook Alexis Soyer page, on the anniversary of his death 5th August 1856. I do this when I cannot attend his grave ‘Faith the Memorial’ at Kensal Green cemetery. I do this as Fanny Ceritto accompanied Alexis to the inauguration of Emma’s memorial, Faith, in September 1844 and laid a wreath at the base. This was the same wreath she had received at La Scala, which was preserved in the recess alongside Emma’s palate and brushes.
