Monument to Jean-Olivier Chénier

Artist: Alfonso Pelzer

Year: 1891

Materials: Copper

Service: Major conservation treatment

The monument to patriot Jean-Olivier Chénier was entirely funded by the French-Canadian people, who wanted to honour this popular hero. The sculpture’s conservation included a treatment of its surface, which had developed a very heterogeneous appearance.

The sculpture was then reinstalled in downtown Montreal after years of absence.
