Considered the father of poetry, he lived at the end of the middle ages, like a turbulent saltimbank and sometimes even, he is considered an offender. He was almost hanged and was the subject of a banishment from Paris!! This makes him write his famous poetry "The Ballad of the Pendus" in 1462. The statue, which is located in the square Paul Langevin, was performed by René Collamarini (1904-1983), who was a professor at the school of fine arts in Paris. The style of Collamarini is stripped of every detail, it sketches the lines with harmony, as a silhouette or as if the object had just been born. The surfaces are smooth with little relief. This is the perfect example of this "Villon" in the garden, which, lightly vaulted, staring, almost absent, dressed in a long dress without decoration, probably must be in an introspection. Placed under a large tree, in the middle of a green lawn, this Villon is highlighted by the softness of the landscape. His poetry written in old French, is not easy to understand. This makes him a poet for insider, but he remains the founding father of realistic poetry and a singular and legendary character. The Paul Langevin square is accessible by the Metro station "cardinal Lemoine" line n ° 10, then taking Rue Monge to the South I had taken the photos joined in 2017, but at the time, we could not create SEO in a square on TRIP. Since that has changed, and so I catch up with lost time!

She pays tribute to the French poet of the late Middle Ages, François de Montcorbier said "Villon", who disappeared in 1463.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
