Monument dedicated to Pfeffel

Monument Pfeffel

This statue of the poet and teacher Théophile Conrad Pfeffel (1736-1809) who was born in Colmar is a copy of an original work of André Friedrich (1859). Initially placed in front of the Unterlinden Museum, the statue was damaged and was replaced by a bronze copy in 1899. However in September 1918, this copy was removed and brought to Frankfurt to be melted for weapons purposes. The current statue was sculpted by Charles Geiss in 1927 and installed in the square next to the former sovereign palace.
