Desault and Bichat memorial tablet

This marble tablet to the memory of Pierre-Joseph Desault and Xavier Bichat can be (partially) seen behind the reception desk of the Hôtel-Dieu in Paris. Since the French inscription states that the monument was placed to attest to the recognition of their contemporaries, it should date back to the beginning of 19th Century and it was probably placed in the ancient buildings of the hospital.
