Caption: Antoine-Augustin Parmentier (1737-1813), French food scientist. This statue was inaugurated on 11 March 1888, in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Paris, France. The sculptor, Adrien Etienne Gaudez (1845-1902), has shown Parmentier studying a potato. Parmentier promoted the potato as a food in France and Europe, and in 1772 the Paris Faculty of Medicine declared potatoes to be edible. Parmentier also studied other foods, and was responsible for the first French smallpox vaccination campaign (under Napoleon), starting in 1805. Artwork from the first volume (first period of 1888) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
