Emmanuel Fremiet statue within Jardin des Plantes in Paris
The HD photo above shows the Paris statue dedicated to the artist Emmanuel Fremiet, which had been commissioned by the Jardin des Plantes and the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris, and was sculpted by another French artist called Henri Greber in 1913 that was made of bronze depicting Fremiet at work as a sculptor himself producing a piece of art.

Now looking towards one side and the back of this statue in Paris, although it is exceedingly hard to see, etched into the bronze base on the edge starting where the post is, there is a name of H Greber, and he was the French sculptor and artist called Henri Leon Greber, who produced the monument.

To discover the Emmanuel Fremiet statue for yourself, it is located in the east corner of the Jardin des Plantes gardens very close to the Gare d’Austerlitz train station that services the Paris Metro line 5, plus you can find a Velib bicycle station only a few metres away along Boulevard de l’Hopital close to Place Valhubert and the River Seine.
