Title Tomb of Oscar Wilde and Robert Baldwin Ross
Object type Tomb
English: Wilde was buried in the Cimetière de Bagneux outside Paris but was later moved to Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. His tomb in Père Lachaise was designed by sculptor Sir Jacob Epstein, at the request of Robert Ross, who also asked for a small compartment to be made for his own ashes. Ross's ashes were transferred to the tomb in 1950. The numerous spots on it are lipstick traces from admirers. The modernist angel depicted as a relief on the tomb was originally complete with male genitals. They were broken off as obscene and kept as a paperweight by a succession of Père Lachaise Cemetery keepers. Their current whereabouts are unknown. In the summer of 2000, intermedia artist Leon Johnson performed a 40 minute ceremony entitled Re-membering Wilde in which a commissioned silver prosthesis was installed to replace the vandalised genitals.

Français: Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) est enterré provisoirement au cimetière de Bagneux avant d'être transféré en 1909 au cimetière du Père-Lachaise. Terminée en 1914, la sculpture réalisée par le sculpteur Jacob Epsetin déplut au conservateur qui la fit bâcher pendant plusieurs années. La sépulture est inspirée des portes assyriennes de Khorsabad. À l'occasion du cinquantième anniversaire de la mort d'Oscar Wilde, les cendres de Robert Ross sont incluses dans la tombe d'Oscar Wilde.
