  • Beautiful sculpture of Rodin. Very well presented in his Museum.

  • Tribute to the neighbor! The statue of the famous french writer echoes the street of nearby Balzac. Indeed, he settled in 1846 and remained there until his death. His house is then bought and razed by the Baroness Rothschild Adèle which uses the ground to build the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild. We notice that Balzac was devoid of the usual attributes of the writer (Chair, pen, book...); Falguière who made this sculpture insisted more on the look dominant artist, draped a monk's robes he wore to write.
