Damremont Statue By Artist Paul Graf

Now this particular statue depicting a general of the French army was produced by the sculptor Henri Paul Graf who was born in 1872 and passed away in 1947 and according to some records, this was put in place in 1924.

Damremont Inscription On Statue Pedestal

Here you can see the plaque located on the pedestal base of the statue depicting Damremont who was born in 1783 with a full name of Charles Marie Denys, Count de Damremont, and entering military school, he fought in many different campaigns, eventually working his way up the ranks and becoming governor general of French-Algeria.

Unfortunately, while commanding an expedition against Constantine, Damremont was fatally hit in the head by a bullet, but due to his recognition, was brought back to Paris and laid to rest within Les Invalides after an impressive ceremony, which saw the premier of the Requium by Hector Berlioz.
