  • Strolling through the aisles of this beautiful Parc Monceau, you will discover several beautiful monuments and statues. Here, it is a tribute to the Parisian composer Charles Gounod, who died in Saint-Cloud in 1893. This work, created in 1902, is due to the illustrious sculptor Marius Jean Antonin Mercié, known as "Antonin Mercié", born in Toulouse and died in Paris in 1916. The choice of Parc Monceau is explained by the fact that Gounod lived nearby, at the 20th place of General Catroux, formerly place Malesherbes. You will see the bust of the composer, accompanied by three heroines of his operas: Marguerite de "Faust", Sapho singing the praise and Juliet of "Romeo and Juliet". This is a very nice tribute and a great achievement. Admire the details.
