  • Not too liked this statue, especially the material and moreover this character is in a fixed position. On the other hand, it is well located because it is at the entrance to a bridge. In his hand you can see a book. On the other hand, there is a lack of an information panel to explain the story of this character

  • Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826 ) is a great American figure dear to the French, successively ambassador of the United States to France (1785-1789) and then President of the United States from 1801 to 1809 , co-founder of the United States. After the purchase of Louisiana from France, he declared "Every man of culture has two homelands, his own and France" ..... Thank you, but what remains of these beautiful statements today? There remains this statue, which was erected in 2006 and which is located on the quay Anatole France at the beginning of the pedestrian bridge "Léopold Sédar Senghor" in the 7th arrondissement. During his stay in Paris, he enjoyed and loved works of art and Parisian life and retained a special attachment to France. The work of Jean Cardot (born in 1930), this statue depicts Jefferson in period frock coat, who looks across the quay, turning his back on the Seine. In fact, Jefferson holds in his left hand a map of the Hotel de Salm (House of the Legion of Honor) which is opposite and which served as a model for his home "Monticello II" in the USA. Jean Cardot, who was a professor at the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris, is a sculptor who has made many statues of famous men, such as those of the Champs Elysees, Charles De Gaulle, Winston Churchill, etc.
