Statue de Diderot, Place St-Germain-des-Prés, Paris

Statue de Diderot sculpted by Jean Gautherin and unveiled in 1886. Located in the Place St-Germain-des-Prés near to where he lived then Taranne street .

Lowry probably saw the statue on his 1933-34 stay in the city; ""We are in the car with the girls as they pass ... the statue of Diderot.." ( The Cinema of Malcolm Lowry: a scholarly edition of Lowry's "Tender is the Night" Edited by Miguel Mota and Paul Tiessen Pg. 70).
