Clotilde de Vaux, 11th arrondissement, Paris

Just off boulevard Beaumarchais, not very far from the Place de la Bastille, is rue Clotilde de Vaux with a bust of the poet who fired Auguste Comte with such enthusiasm.

Oddly, there appears to be no inscription here.

A representation of Clotilde de Vaux is in the Place de la Sorbonne, to the viewer's left of the statue of August Comte.
