Tarass Chevtchenko and René Laennec in the 6th arrondissement, Paris

Square Tarass-Chevtchenko, in front of the Ukranian church of Saint-Vladimir-le-Grand, boulevard St Germain. The bust was sculpted by Lyssenko in 1978.
Also in the square is a tablet dedicated to René-Théophile-Marie-Hyacinthe Laennec, a medical doctor and the inventor of auscultation and the stethoscope. His writings include Traité de l'auscultation médiate et des maladies des poumons et du coeur (1819). The plaque was sculpted by René Quillivic (1879-1969) in 1942.
