Name inscription on Francois de Malherbe statue
And in this last high definition photo, you can see the name shown on the base of the statue, which is dedicated to Francois de Malherbe who was born in 1555 in Normandy, and became a French poet.

Much of his work was not over praised initially, yet in 1600 he produced an ode as a welcome for Marie de Medici and King Louis XIII, which is one of his best and most remembered works, and working from the royal court, he passed away in Paris in 1628.
