In French, a 'Vérité de la Palisse' (or 'La Palissade') is a self-evident truth, as in the following verse:
"Monsieur de la Palisse is dead,
he died before Pavie,
Fifteen minutes before his death,
he was still quite alive.
He was by sorry fate
wounded by a cruel hand
Since he died of it, we fear
the wound was a mortal one."
Then he patted her
Then he passed the female catheter
For he was a medical
Jolly old medi...

From Wikipedia: Gustave Moreau (1826 - 1898) was a French Symbolist painter. He was born and died in Paris. Moreau's main focus was the illustration of Christian and mythological figures. As a painter of literary ideas rather than visual images, his images appealed to the imagination of some Symbolist writers and artists, who saw him as the precursor to their movement. His first painting was a Pieta which is now located in the cathedral at Angouleme.
This painting is 'Prometheus.' In 1891, Moreau became professor at l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts of Paris, and counted among his many students the fauvist painters Henri Matisse and Georges Rouault. He is buried in Paris at the Cimetierre de Montmartre. Moreau created over 8000 paintings and drawings, many of which are now in the Musée Gustave Moreau at 14, rue de la Rochefoucauld (9e) in Paris. The museum is in his former workshop, and opened to the public in 1903. It is one of the nicest museums in Paris, jam-packed with his works. That's where I got these postcards.
