  • At The crossroads of the boulevards of Raspay and Montparnasse under the chestnut trees our attention was attracted by a rather impressive bronze statue. It turned out to be a monument to the classics of the French and world literature Honoré de Balzac. And the sculpture is made not less famous sculptor Rodin. A Writer in a robe or monastic robe looks a little unexpectedly, but the artist saw it. So arguing is meaningless.

  • The statue of Honoré de Balzac is one of the works of Rodin. It is very interresting to see drafts and Genesis at the Museum

  • Beautiful sculpture of Rodin. Very well presented in his Museum.

  • Tribute to the neighbor! The statue of the famous french writer echoes the street of nearby Balzac. Indeed, he settled in 1846 and remained there until his death. His house is then bought and razed by the Baroness Rothschild Adèle which uses the ground to build the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild. We notice that Balzac was devoid of the usual attributes of the writer (Chair, pen, book...); Falguière who made this sculpture insisted more on the look dominant artist, draped a monk's robes he wore to write.
