Here you can see a close up photograph showing the statue of the female figure classed as a relief, which is a part of this monument that was sculpted by Felix Benneteau, who was born in Paris in 1879 and studied at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts winning the Prix de Rome in 1909 to further his studies at the Villa Medici in Italy.

Comedians Names Inscribed On Monument To Aux Comediens Morts Pour La France

However, this image shows some of the names at the top of the Monument to The Comedians who Died for France, yet these people were also actors, etc, and Felix Benneteau, with a full name of Felix Benneteau-Desgrois produced several other monuments that were dedicated to the First World War.

Pedestal Inscription On Monument To Aux Comediens Morts Pour La France

Unfortunately, we were unable to get a clear photograph of the bottom section of the Aux Comediens Morts pour la France monument, yet if you look very carefully at the bottom right hand corner, you can see where this has the name of the French sculptor, Felix Benneteau.

To the left of this below the two traditional theatre faces you will see another inscription for when it was inaugurated, in the November of 19 something and who it was in the presence of, but unfortunately we never managed to get a clear enough shot, so if anyone knows, please feel free to tell us and help improve the site further.
