Marshall Ney Statue

Statue of Marshall Ney (Napoleon's right hand man) in front of the Cafe Closerie des Lias terrace in Paris, France.

 

The statue is mentioned by Earnest Hemingway in A MOVEABLE FEAST as well as THE SUN ALSO RISES.

 

Says Jake Barnes in SUN:

 

"He looked very fine, Marshal Ney in his top-boots, gesturing with his sword among the green new horse-chestnut leaves."
