Catalogue Note

Monument to the Orators and Publicists of the Restoration (1892-1902)
The Pantheon represents for the newborn third Republic the absolute symbol of the political power and its decoration is meant to set in stone the proof of its legitimacy. From 1883, Auguste Rodin and Jean-Antoine Injalbert were entrusted respectively with the monuments to Hugo and Mirabeau. Followed by in 1890, the monument to the Triumph of the Revolution by Alexandre Falguière.
On the death of Henri Chapu, Dalou asked for and obtained the Monument to the Orators and Publicists of the Restoration which was left unfinished by the deceased sculptor. Antonin Mercié is put in charge of the pendant to the monument of Dalou: The Generals of the Revolution.
In 1902, the final version intended to serve as a model for the marble was left unfinished by the late Dalou, is judged insufficiently advanced to carry on the project. According to the sketches left by Dalou, the obelisk in its center offered a brilliant reinterpretation of the iconography of the eighteenth century funerary statuary. Laurent Marqueste would eventually carry out the commission.
