In English this translates to Commemorative Monument of Pierre-Louis Moreau de Maupertuis and his father Rene Moreau de Maupertuis, and Rene Moreau de Maupertuis was born in 1664 and became a ship owner and captain who was also a corsair, which is someone who is authorised by the government or king to have a ship that can attack the enemy during times of war, and he was ennobled by King Louis XIV in 1708.

Now his son, Pierre Louis Moreau de Maupertuis was born in 1698 and through his fathers connections was offered a military post at the age of 20 and then became a lieutenant, yet he decided to abandon a mility career to study mathematics and became a physicist, astronomer, philosopher, naturalist and mathematician.

John Baptiste d'Huez was born in 1730 and studying to become a French sculptor under Jean Baptiste II Lemoyne, he won the Prix de Rome in 1753, which led to furthering his studies at the Villa Medici and upon his return received commissions for different monuments and statues, plus was put in charge of finishing marble statues that had been left by his teacher when he passed away.
