  • In the 13th arrondissement, on the square of the Gare d'Austerlitz, you will discover this modern statue entitled "the bearer of hope". Created in 2016, it is due to the sculptor Denis Monfleur, a native of Périgueux, who installed his workshop in the former salt loft of Fontenay-sous-Bois (94). Senator Jean-François Voguet, Mayor of this commune, awarded him on behalf of the Minister of culture and communication, the insignia of the Knight of Arts and letters. This work, the largest monolithic sculpture of Paris, made in lava of Chambois (volcanoes of the Puy-de-Dôme) and weighing about six tons, pays tribute to the "international brigades", volunteer fighters from all countries to fight with the Spanish Republicans against fascism and freedom. This sculpture marks the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Spanish war in 1936 and the creation of these brigades. "The bearer of hope" is taken from the novel by André Malraux "l'Espoir", which chronicles the Spanish war. You can come by Metro, lines 5, 10 or "RER C", station "Gare d'Austerlitz".

  • This statue sculpted in a monolithic block of lava of Chambois, is located on the square in front of the Court for the start of the Seine side Austerlitz station. She paid tribute to the "International Brigades" that ended October 22, 1936, to fight in Spain against the regime of Franco. Volunteers from all countries, gathered here to take the train in the station. This sculpture was created by the artist Denis Monfleur, Fontenay, and its title "The provider of hope" makes reference to the novel by André Malraux "L'Espoir" which recounted the war of Spain of the Republicans against Fascists in 1936. It is also the largest monolithic statue raised in Paris for a century, because it weighs 6 tons and is 3 meters of height. Aesthetically, it gives the impression of being only a draft, with carved elements "Has the sickle". We can say that it is an impressionistic work, abstract mi and mi figurative style, leaving the Viewer on his hunger or its end! It was inaugurated on October 22, 2016, anniversary of this event. It is accessible from the metro station "Station of Austerlitz" lines No. 5 and 10 and RER C
