This monument of chief surgeon Aimé Guinard can be seen in the main courtyard of the Hôtel-Dieu in Paris. It was inaugurated in the morning of June 24, 1913; two years before, on June 21, 1911, Prof. Guinard had been murdered a few meters away from the spot of the monument by gunshots fired by a fool. The monument was sculpted by French artist Henri Couteilhas and consists of a stone statue which depicts a woman holding out flowers to Guinard whose face is represented in a marble medallion.
