  • This white marble monument is located in the Parc Monceau, where precisely Fréderic Chopin has come a few times to taste a certain romanticism of these places. However, it seems that Chopin, pictured here playing the piano (it seems) the funeral March, would probably have hoped better to represent him. In addition, a young girl in a plunder, is slated at the foot of the piano and an Angel exempts rose flowers from the master and the unhappy one; You think you're dreaming? Fortunately, for Chopin's fans, this one has made many romantic and cheerful works, which fill the spirits with optimism. Here we are in total Melo! One can also notice that Chopin, is deconcentrated from his piano, because he fixes the girl..... However, the sculpture is precise and of good workmanship, by Jacques Froment Meurice (1864-1948) and dates from 1899. This monument is in fact installed here only in 1906, because the members of the Committee do not agree on the execution, while Moreover, there have been problems to collect the money, and we understand them.

  • The Parisian sculptor Jacques Charles François Marie Froment-Meurice, who died in 1947, was a pupil of the illustrious Henri Chapu. He has mainly worked in the art nouveau style. Here he pays homage to the composer Frédéric Chopin. This high marble relief made on a vertical pan, depicts Chopin on the piano, playing the funeral March. At his feet, the allegory of pain is crying and on the top, an Angel spreads flowers. Come by Metro, line 3, station "Malesherbes".
