The monument, standing in the centre of a water basin formed of four half-circles, is composed of a pedestal and a square column. The fourteen bronze elements of the composition are articulated around these architectural elements designed by architects Mesnard and Venne. Place d’Armes was the perfect spot to celebrate the founder of Montréal, as it was the central square of the historic city.

At the top of the square column is the statue of Maisonneuve, founder and first governor of Ville-Marie. His eyes fixed on the horizon, he holds the flag of the king of France in his right hand; his left hand rests on the pommel of his sword.

Just below, on the pediment of the column, is a scroll bearing the first coat of arms of the city of Montréal,

Located at the Place d’Armes, the Maisonneuve Monument was created by famed sculptor Louis-Philippe Hebert and erected in 1895. If the name “Hebert” sounds familiar that’s because he was considered one of the best – if not THE best – sculptor of his day. Hebert’s impressive works dot the landscape of Montreal and Ottawa (many of his sculptures can be found on Parliament Hill, including an outstanding statue of Queen Victoria). The level of detail Louis-Philippe Hebert is able to capture in his sculptures – and the Maisonneuve Monument is no exception – is simply outstanding. From the facial details to the “wrinkles” in the clothing, it is no wonder Hebert was so sought after to develop and create these important works, many of which pay homage and tribute to important figures in Canadian history.

Speaking of history, Hebert was commissioned to create the Maisonneuve Monument as a way to celebrate Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve and the 250th anniversary of the founding of Montreal (then called Ville-Marie). As far as sculptures that tell a story, the Maisonneuve Monument is epic in this regard because it, in effect, speaks to the founding of Montreal and how it took a variety of actors to bring the city to life. Consider:

At the zenith of the monument stands Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the founder and first Governor of Ville-Marie (modern day Montreal). He stands poised and serious – looking towards Notre-Dame. The flag of the king of France in his hand, ready to proclaim and claim the “new” land. At the column’s mid-base sits four figures important to the history of Montreal: Jeanne Mance, the first lay nurse in North America and founder of the first hospital in Ville-Marie; Raphael-Lambert Closse, the governor’s lieutenant; Charles Lemoyne, who was responsible for the security of the new township; and an “anonymous Iroquois warrior” who is there for their functional and practical purpose, being stewards of the land (and, hey, they caught Hebert’s imagination!).

Curiously, the monument was splashed with red paint in 2018 as part of what I call our retroactive “anger” towards historical figures because what was acceptable a few hundred years ago isn’t acceptable today. “Gassy Jack” in Vancouver suffered the same fate a couple of years later. Sometimes I think these acts of “protest” are just an excuse for people to vandalise parts of the city.

In any event, the Maisonneuve Monument, in my view, represents one of Louis-Philippe Hebert’s best works, which says a lot given the quality he produced. It tells a story; is highly detailed; and, has stood the test of time. If you’re exploring Old Montreal, and pass through the Place d’Armes, be sure to take a moment and appreciate this statue. It helps set the stage and context of the area.

PS: Looking back at my notes, I’d started penning this review in July and then obviously got distracted by other things. Such is life, I suppose ;)

The Maisonneuve Monument is a tribute to a famous “Canadian”! Paul de Chomedey, sieur de Maisonneuve, was a French military officer. In 1642 he established Fort Ville-Marie (which is modern-day Montreal) in what was then New France or the present Province of Quebec. Ville-Marie was set up on the shores of the Island of Montreal, where a chapel, a hospital and a small settlement were built. Maisonneuve served as the first governor of Montreal. The monumental sculpture stands in the middle of Place d’ Armes, facing the Notre-Dame Basilica which is located just a little further away on the street opposite, and behind the monument is a magnificent building housing Canada’s oldest bank, the Bank of Montreal, established in 1817. Quite a contrast!

Maisonneuve Monument, was designed by two architects Albert Mesnard and Joseph Venne, to commemorate Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve, one of the city’s founders and first governor of Ville-Marie.

Artworks and craftsmanship of the bronze sculpturing was facilitated by artist Louis-Philippe Hébert who specialized in bronze sculpting techniques. This project was commissioned in 1892 by the local citizens for the 250th anniversary of the founding of the city in 1642. The bronzes which made up the main elements of the monument were cast in Paris by the Thiébaut Frères House. The project was not completed till 1895. On July 1, 1895 commemoration and ceremony of Maisonneuve Monument, was finally unveiled at the historical center of the city, today’s Place d’Armes. It has since been one of the main attractions around Place d’Armes besides Notre-Dame of Montréal.

At the top of the monument is a small patriotic bravery statue of Paul de Chomedey de Maisonneuve, founder and first governor of Ville-Marie, holding the flag of the king of France in his right hand and a sword on his left hand.

Below the statue is a scroll bearing the first coat of arms of the city of Montreal, designed by the city's first mayor, Jacques Viger.

Below the pedestal are four worthy of mentioned legendary figures from the 17th Century, whose contributions signifying history of Montréal in the making. Here are their stories-

Statue of Jeanne Mance, the first lay nurse in North America and founder of the first hospital in Montréal, the Hôtel-Dieu. She is portrayed by the artist Louis-Philippe Hébert with a comforting and calm face. She looks down at the child’s wounded hand and gently places a bandage on it. She was recognized by the municipal council in 2012 as a founder of Montréal, an equally important role with the founder Paul de Chomedey, Sieur de Maisonneuve.

Statue of Raphaël-Lambert Closse, major of the garrison and the governor's lieutenant. He is most known for his work in fighting the Iroquois. His dog Pilotte in the crook of his arm.

Statue of Charles Lemoyne, a colonist, farmer and soldier, who was responsible for the security of Ville-Marie. Charles Lemoyne was also a slave owner. He later set his slaves free and renounced slavery of any kind.

Statue of an anonymous Iroquois warrior representing Iroquoian-speaking confederacy of Native Americans of the Five Nation.

At the base of the column are bas-reliefs, depicting significant historical events of Montréal ( Ville-Marie )

Four semi-circular water pools decorated with mythological figures, spewing water from their mouths. Here is the place where kids and adults can enjoy their leisure strolling around the plaza, listening to the sounds of the spewing water and feeling the cool mists on their faces in the hot summer days, or take a tour of Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal nearby.

When you visit the Notre-Dame Basilica, a well-known religious and tourist attraction in Montreal, you will definitely see this vivid monument. This monument was built in 1895 to commemorate Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the founder of Montreal. The statue is lifelike and attracts attention. There is a small pool at the base of the monument, where many children play happily in the hot summer.

It’s a pretty nice statue in front of the big church. I heard a tour guide say it’s one of the founders of the city which is cool. It’s well done.

A statue of one of the founders of Montreal, it’s in the old military parade grounds, now a small park. Stop and look while walking through the park, then keep going.

Love Place D'Armes, at least most of the buildings that surround it. Some are forgettable, the most modern ones. This monument is in the middle of this square. Suitable place for one of the founders of the city.

Dedicato a Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve, fondatore di Montreal, fu realizzato nel 1895 da Louis-Philippe Hébert. Trovo che sia una bella composizione, elegante e d'effetto con statue e bassorilievi alla base. In place d'Armes merita una sosta prolungata.
