Place du général Catroux - 75017 Paris
Porte Maillot - Monceau
In the Place du Général Catroux, three sets of statues representing three generations of the Dumas family stand in the middle of the flower beds and lawns. The bronze statue of Alexandre Dumas père (1802-1870) was sculpted by Gustave Doré in 1883. The stone statue of Alexandre Dumas fils (1824-1895) was designed by René de Saint-Marceaux in 1906. The third is a monumental sculpture in iron representing the broken irons of a slave, created in 2009 by Driss Sans-Arcidet - a tribute to Général Dumas, who was born a slave. Every year on May 10th, the garden hosts a ceremony in honour of the victims of slavery, on the occasion of the National Day of Remembrance of the slave trade, slavery, and its abolition.
