Catalogue Note

Monument to Charles Floquet (1896-1899)
Charles Floquet (1828-1896) was an early Republican Deputy, vice-president then president of the Chamber of Deputies and finally Senator from 1894 onwards. In 1890, Dalou made a bust of Floquet as a pledge of their Friendship, whose plaster and marble are housed in the museum of Petit-Palais (inv. No. PPS00304 and No. PPS01272). The senator's widow thus naturally commissioned Dalou for a monument in his memory to be placed in the Père-Lachaise cemetery. The grateful Freedom figure lays a wreath at the foot of the column supporting the bust of the statesman.
