Photos of La Ville de Brest statue at Place de la Concorde in Paris France - Page 113

The Place de la Concorde has a rich and bloody history behind it including when a guillotine was installed in the square and famous people including Marie Antoinette met their fate here, however, after the French Revolution the square was eventually redesigned by the architect Jacques Ignace Hittorff, and it was he who ordered the eight statues to be produced with one at each point representing a different city, and this is a photo of the statue called La Ville de Brest, or City of Brest, which was produced in 1836 by Jean-Pierre Cortot.

Place de la Concorde La Ville de Brest Statue

Now even though the Place de la Concorde is known as the largest square in Paris, it is in fact octagonal in shape and at each of its points there is a large stone statue, which is designed to represent one of the cities in France, and this next photo we took of the statue depicting the city of Brest was put in place in the 1830s when the fountains were also added to the square.
