Balzac – Paris

Rodin’s statue of Balzac was never cast in bronze in his lifetime. In 1939, a bronze statue was finally placed at the crossing of the boulevards Montparnasse and Raspail in Paris. There seems to be no particular connection between this location and Balzac’s life in Paris, and the statue is not in a prominent position but hidden away amongst trees.
