Edouard van Beneden's statue

This bronze statue of Edouard van Beneden stands at the right of the entrance staircase to the Zoological Institute of the University of Liege (Quai Edouard van Beneden)1, beside the similar one erected to the memory of Theodor Schwann.

As it can be read on a bronze plaque on the basament of the statue: "LA GENEROSITE DE MECENES / A PERMIS / A L’UNIVERSITE DE LIEGE / DE DEDIER CETTE STATUE / LE 24 MAI 1920 / AU CELEBRE BIOLOGISTE".

The name of the sculptor and the year are almost illegible at the bottom of the statue.
