Paul Maximilien Landowski (1 June 1875–31 March 1961) was a French monument sculptor of Polish descent. His best-known work is Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He produced over 35 monuments in the city of Paris and 12 more in the surrounding area. His most famous First World War memorial is Les Fantomes, the French memorial to the Second Battle of the Marne which stands upon the Butte de Chalmont in Northern France.
However, in Paris in the Trocadéro there is an equally prestigious sculpture that most tourists to the area usually fail to notice. It is his tribute to the Gloire of the French Army national monument shown here.
