Stendhal monument designed by architect Charles Plumet
In this first image you can see a monument dedicated to the French writer known by his pen name of Stendhal, which was first decided upon after a meeting at the Senate on 8th November 1911, and in front of this you can see a plaque written in French that provides some information about this.
Stele monument dedicated to Stendhal
This stone monument was actually designed by the French architect Charles Plumet who passed away in Paris in the April of 1928, having been previously awarded the Legion of Honour, and this stele as it is known, stands at almost three metres in height.
Commemorative statue of writer Stendhal
And in this photo you can see a different angle showing the front of this commemorative statue made of stone, with a bronze medallion positioned on it that was designed by the artist David d'Angers, yet produced by the famous sculptor Auguste Rodin.
Stendhal or Henri Beyle commemorative monument
This close up view of the top of the monument dedicated to Stendhal, shows the name beneath the bronze medallion, which has a circumference of almost half a metre, and as we mentioned, this was designed by David d'Angers, who was actually born Pierre Jean David in Angers, yet adopted the name to distinguish himself from another master painter that had the same surname.
Plaque at the Stendhal monument in Luxembourg Gardens
And this is a close up photo showing the French information plaque relating to the stele, which is basically a term used for a commemorative or funerary monument normally made of stone, and as you can see, this mentions the two artists, Auguste Rodin and David d'Angers.
Inscription on the Stendhal monument in Paris
Now in this photo showing the back of the stele, you can just make out that there is an inscription carved into the stone, although it is very hard to make out, but it does mention two of the most well known novels that Stendhal wrote called Le Rouge et le Noir and La Chartrouse de Parme.
Stendhal bronze medallion produced by Auguste Rodin
And this is a close up photo we took of the bronze medallion that was sculpted by the famous French artist Auguste Rodin whose sculptures and statues can be found in numerous places throughout the world, who was born in 1840, yet he passed away in 1917 before the monument was officially inaugurated on 28th June 1920.
