Statue of Jean Bart, at Dunkerque, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Statue of Jean Bart, at Dunkerque, 1845. Sculpture of Flemish naval commander and privateer Jean Bart at Dunkirk in northern France. Precisely at twelve, the veil from the Statue dropt, and discovered the hero, in the costume of the time of Louis XIV. brandishing a sword in his right hand, a pistol in his left, and wearing another in his belt. He is supposed to be engaged in boarding a ship, as this was his usual and favourite mode of carrying on the fight, and which ensured to him so much success: he succeeded in capturing and carrying into Dunkerque upwards of two hundred Dutch merchant vessels, during the war with the Dutch States. The Statue is of bronze, 16 feet high, and executed in the first style of the celebrated David (d'Angers) - the Thorwaldsen of France'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
