On the occasion of the redevelopment of the alleys of the Emperor and Mortarieu, new works of contemporary art paying homage to the figure of Bourdelle have taken place on this beautiful promenade.

Departing from the Esplanade des Fontaines, discover the Cleopatra by Flavio de Faveri, go up towards the Wave by Patrick Berthaud, a tribute to Camille Claudel whom Bourdelle rubbed shoulders with in Rodin’s studio.

Further on, near the kiosk, admire the monumental spiers of Emilie Prouchet Dalla Costa, which seem to have been shot by the Herakles archer emerging from the ground by Corinne Chauvet, installed on the belvedere overlooking the Jardin des Plantes.
