DALOU, Jules
(b. 1838, Paris, d. 1902, Paris)

Triumph of the Republic

Bronze, height 12 m
Place de la Nation, Paris

For the city of Paris Dalou executed his most elaborate and splendid achievement, the vast monument, The Triumph of the Republic, erected, after twenty years work, in the Place de la Nation. It shows a symbolical figure of the Republic, aloft on her car, drawn by lions led by Liberty, attended by Labour and Justice, and followed by Abundance.
