The Place Louis XV is known today as Place de la Concorde, with, at its centre an equestrian statue of Louis XV.


It has not been possible to decipher the entire inscription on the pedestal of the statue but it appears that it could include the signature of the artist: Chipart (?). There is a record of a French artist called L. Chipart (1744-1807) who is described as a landscape painter.
