Stendhal Monument Designed By Charles Plumet

In this first image you can see a monument dedicated to the French writer known by his pen name of Stendhal, which was first decided upon after a meeting at the Senate on 8th November 1911, and in front of this you can see a plaque written in French that provides some information about this.

Stele Monument Dedicated To Stendhal

This stone monument was actually designed by the French architect Charles Plumet who passed away in Paris in the April of 1928, having been previously awarded the Legion of Honour, and this stele as it is known, stands at almost three metres in height.

This close up view of the top of the monument dedicated to Stendhal, shows the name beneath the bronze medallion, which has a circumference of almost half a metre, and as we mentioned, this was designed by David d'Angers, who was actually born Pierre Jean David in Angers, yet adopted the name to distinguish himself from another master painter that had the same surname.

And this is a close up photo we took of the bronze medallion that was sculpted by the famous French artist Auguste Rodin whose sculptures and statues can be found in numerous places throughout the world, who was born in 1840, yet he passed away in 1917 before the monument was officially inaugurated on 28th June 1920.
