This particular bronze statue in Paris that you can see in the photo above was produced by the French artist and sculptor Leon Fagel, yet the actual large base and pedestal was designed by the architect Victor Blasette, and although the actual monument was completed in 1908, it was not officially inaugurated until the June of 1909 in the presence of the French President.
Here you can see a photo we took showing one side of the statue located in the Jardin des Plantes that is dedicated to Jean Baptiste Lamarck who originally worked within the Jardin du Roi as it was known before the French Revolution, which is when he decided to change the name to what we still know the botanical gardens as today.
This is a photo we took showing the back of the bronze statue of Jean Baptiste Lamarck on top of a large pedestal that also contains a bronze bas relief, which was produced by the French sculptor Leon Fagel, yet this was only produced in 1908, even though Lamarck was born in 1744 and died in Paris in 1829.
Here is a close up HD photo we took of the bas relief that was sculpted in bronze and positioned on the pedestal at the back of the statue in Paris dedicated to Jean Baptiste Lamarck, and if you look carefully at the bottom left of the image, there is an inscription, which generally translates to Posterity will admire you; It will avenge you, my Father.
This is another photo we took of the Paris statue dedicated to the memory of Jean Baptiste Larmarck who had a full name of Jean-Baptiste Pierre Antoine de Monet, Chevalier de Lamarck, and although he was originally in the army, he studied medicine and botany and became a professor of zoology, and was a major figure associated with the Jardin des Plantes botanical gardens.
In this close up photo we took of the inscription located on one side of the statue of Jean Baptiste Lamarck, it states a date of 1802 at the top, which refers to a publication of his regarding hydrogeology, then another on Geology Philosophy produced in 1809 and many published volumes from 1815 through to 1822 that were related to the natural history of animals without vertebrae’s, and in fact, Lamarck was the first person to use the term biology in the way we would refer to it today.
Now, you will find this statue of Jean Baptiste Lamarck located in the 5th Arrondissement of Paris inside Jardin des Plantes very close to the North East entrance within an area known as the Esplanade Lamarck, which is only a short walk away from the River Seine and the Gare d'Austerlitz train station that services RER C trains along with metro lines 5 and 10.
