Monument to Henry Murger in Paris

Here is a picture of monument to the French poet and novelist Louis-Henri Murger (aka Henry Murger). His writings were the basis for the operas La bohème by Puccini and La bohème by Leoncavallo.

I came across his monument in August 2016 while walking thru Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris France while looking for a nearby mineral museum at École nationale supérieure des mines de Paris (MINES ParisTech).
