Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This sculpture is of a moderately well known French sculptor and painter of the 19th century who has a square named after him in the 18th arondissement of Paris. Get out your maps, Ted.

Here's the square.

"Square Carpeaux is a pleasant splash of green in the 18th arrondissement.   There is a playground for the neighborhood's children, lots of benches under beautiful shady trees, and even a fin-de-siècle bandstand.   (Alas, the bandstand is being refitted and is not used at present.)

The Square is named for Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux (1827 - 1875), a sculptor-artist and graduate of the School of Beaux-Arts of Paris."

I claim my 4 :-)

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner - that I moved to Nice.
