These are the statues of the Dumas family known as father and son members known. There is also the entrance of an annex to the Faculty of the Sorbonne and pretty buildings. The problem, it is that the place is through cross streets and so loses its interest for pedestrians.

First of all, in front of the exit of the M °, that monumental of Alexandre Dumas-father by the great painter, Illustrator and sculptor Gustave Doré, with a superb of d'Artagnan in bronze. In front, on the other side of this square, the statue of his son, Alexandre Dumas-son, the author of the "Lady of the Camellias", by the great sculptor René Saint - Marceaux. And then, the monument to general Dumas (father and grandfather) realized in 2009, by the sculptor Driss-without-Arcidet representing irons of slaves broken more than 5 meters high. We no longer know who was general Catroux, this magnificent place is that of the Dumas. We can admire the extraordinary and so vast mansion built for the banker Gaillard. "Historical monument" is in total restoration which should be completed soon to House a museum dedicated, by the Bank of France, (the owner) to finance, currency,... Just in front of the entrance to this magnificent building, a very beautiful and sober statue of the great tragedian Sarah Bernhardt who had his mansion not far from it.
