  • The fountain was installed in 1911 in St. George's Square. Poorly adjusted: one of the jets hits the roadway.

  • It's a shame because this fountain is not in a square so I can look at the different sculptures and don't think it's a fountain because I didn't see any water. On the other hand, it is surrounded by a grid. It dates from 1904 and it is to pay tribute to Gavarni, cartoonist-designer, the architect is Henri Guillaume (1868-1929) and the sculptor is Denys Puech (1854-1942). The bust of Gavani can be seen at the top of the cylinder. The cylinder is decorated with different carnival characters such as death with its clille or tank top. There are 4 bronze macaroons in order to let the water flow, La lorette, The Bohemian artist, the beggar and the shrew. I regret the lack of an explanatory sign to explain the different characters, on the other hand it is true that this fountain serves as a roundabout.
