  • In the 6th arrondissement, in the Luxembourg Garden, to the left of the Palace and before the Orangery, under the trees, you will discover this monument that sits in the middle of a rectangular basin where water comes out of bouquets of foliage. At the top of the stele is the bronze bust of Eugene Delacroix. At the foot, the allegories of Glory and Time with Apollo. Created in 1890, this work is the work of the renowned sculptor Aimé Jules Dalou. This is an exceptional job. Take the time to admire. To see and especially to see again if you are passing. Each time, we notice new details. You can come by metro line 4, station "Saint Sulpice".

  • This fountain is grandiose but I did not like the characters, especially the woman who shows her breasts and it is not normal this type of fountain in a public garden. As for the characters nothing attractive and I really did not understand this work that dates from 1890. This is sculpture No. 38 on the map: Fountain Eugene Delacroix, painter (1799-1863), by Dalou (1890)
