  • The Balzac bronze statue cast by Rodin is on blvd Raspail close to Luxembourg gardens. We came upon it while going to the Montparnasse tower. It's a nice tribute to the famous writer. For more Rodin.....  more »
  • Definately not the best work by Rodin and a quite subpar monument to the famous author who really deserved more.  more »

  • 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.
