The first (and only) reader comment on this, at the site:
"I’m not trying to be mean. I did enjoy the article, but “ignominy” does not mean to be anonymous. It means “disgrace”. I couldn’t figure out why you would say these people died in ignominy until I realized there was confusion about the words meaning."

Which was what I was going to say. Even anonymity is too strong. Most of them were reasonably well known, even if they were not cultural icons (Bach, I think, was well-known, comfortably well off, and a cultural icon at the time of his death).

I disagree about Monet. I don't see how he could have that villa in Giverny without having some money.
