Statue de Georges Pompidou Reviews
Je dirai que ce n’est pas joli à voir car il n’y a pas de nom, ni de panneau explicatif,pour expliquer cette statue. Celle-ci se trouve sur du gazon et il n’y a pas de parterres de fleurs. Bref, elle ... more »I will say that it is not pretty to see because there is no name, nor an explanatory sign, to explain this statue. This one is on grass and there are no flower beds.

Combining the tradition of the monument and the innovation of contemporary art, this monumental statue of Pompidou may seem at first geometric and monolithic ("menhir in three-piece suit" it is said) but the artist's goal was to bring out the calm and determination of the politician. Without a base, far from the smugglers (usually), lost in the middle of a flowerbed of greenery and flowers, Georges Pompidou seems, like "the happy king" of Félix Leclerc, to have escaped from his harsh reality "... his heart is light, he goes into the meadows, alone on foot ... and the earth is lighter."
