  • Who once visited the Opéra Garnier is not surprising that in 1989, the authorities, in agreement with the population, died of renaming this opera house (formerly called the Paris Opera) after its designer, the Parisian architect Jean Louis Charles Garnier (1825-1898) and that on his death, it was decided to erect a small monument to his memory and glory. This monument is composed of the gilded bronze bust of Charles Garnier, the work of his childhood friend, the sculptor Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (1827-1875), accompanied, on each side, by an allegorical female figure - The Fame and the Study - sculptures also in bronze by Gabriel Jules-Thomas (1824-1905). Located in front of the west façade of the Opera Garnier, at the foot of the Emperor's rotunda, slightly behind the gates that protect its access, this sculpted group was inaugurated in 1903. It was placed on a stone base on which was fixed a rectangular metal plate on which, in hollow and gilded to the sheet, appears the plane of the main level of the Opera. A well-deserved tribute!

  • After a beautiful visit inside the Palais Garnier we went to walk on the outside and we found many sculptures, richly decorated columns and one of them was that which is located on the left side and a little in the background if we are looking ahead to The Palais Garnier. It is possible to see a plant with the details of the entire architectural ensemble.
