This first HD photo shows the full Monument to Stefan Zweig, which was commissioned by the French Senate, as they wanted to honour the memory of the Austrian novelist after his first journey to France in 1902 and this was inaugurated on 9th December 2003.
This monument was inaugurated in the presence of several dignitaries and Felix Schivo who was the artist that sculpted the bronze bust and the open book beneath, and was positioned in the north western section of the Luxembourg Gardens, which is to the left of the Orangerie and the Palais du Luxembourg if you are looking at the buildings from the main garden.
So this next image shows a close up of the bust produced by Felix Schivo who was born on 15th March 1924 and became a French sculptor, studying first in Avignon, then at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, and throughout his long career he became known for his realistic busts of famous people, prior to passing away in Chantilly at the age of 82.
Yet this photo shows the plaque located on the pedestal of the monument, which as you can tell is dedicated to Stefan Zweig who was a writer of novels, plus he was a playwright, journalist and a biographer, and during the 1920s and 1930s he became one of the most popular writers in the world, with his books being translated and published in numerous different languages.
And in this last high definition image you can see another part of the Monument to Stefan Zweig that looks like an open book, and as you can see, he was born in Vienna, Austria in 1881.
Yet because he was born to a Jewish family, when Hitler rose to power he first of all went to England, however, with the advances being made during World War II, he and his wife then travelled to America, but again moved to Petropolis, which is a mountain town close to Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.
But, Stefan Zweig was not happy and despaired about the predicament of Europe, and as you can see from the photo, he died in Petropolis in 1942, which was actually through suicide, as him and his wife were found dead in their home holding hands from an overdose. However, his legacy has remained with many of his novels being revived and republished or even turned into films.
