  • This white marble fountain monument is located at place du Canada since 1910, on Franklin Delano Roosevelt Avenue in the 8th arrondissement. It is the work, in the form of allegory, of the sculptor count Alfred Moncel de Perrin, made in 1904. This monument tells, that under the ancient ruins, the poet, lying at the foot of the columns, dreams of nostalgic loves. It is necessary to read this monument as a "cartoon" carved, with on the right, Alfred de Musset seated, surrounded by two admirals, who observes thoughtful, the scene on the other side. On the other side, we see two scenes that unfold beneath the ancient Greek columns. The poet is lying dreaming, surrounded by two muses. On the far left, the dream is embodied by a young man at the foot of a muse, who seeks love, the subject of Alfred de Musset's favourite. The sculptor left a single block of white marble and carved the whole. It comes in a well-defined form in two distinct parts, but in a style considered romantic. This work, before being placed in this place, had been presented at the arts fairs of 1905 and 1907, although judged by some "mediocre"!! What do you think? This work is accessible by the Metro station "Franklin D Roosevelt" lines n ° 1 and 9, then take the Avenue Franklin Roosevelt towards the Seine.

Created in white marble in 1910, she pays tribute to the poet and playwright Alfred de Musset. It is the work of the sculptor medailleur Alphonse Emmanuel of Moncel of Perrin, who died in 1930. Look at the details. A superb job.
