Monument to Balzac is a sculpture by Auguste Rodin in memory of the French novelist Honoré Balzac. The sculpture aims to portray the writer’s persona rather than a physical likeness, according to Rodin. Honoré de Balzac (1799 – 1850) was a prominent French novelist and playwright. The Monument to Balzac was commissioned in 1891 by the Société des Gens de Lettres, a full-size plaster model was displayed in 1898 at a Salon in Champ de Mars. After coming under criticism the model was rejected by the Société and Rodin moved it to his home in Meudon. On July 2, 1939 (22 years after the sculptor's death) the model was cast in bronze for the first time and displayed in Paris on the Boulevard du Montparnasse.
