Philippe Henri de Girard (1775-1845), French inventor. De Girard invented an early frame for spinning flax, an important advance for the textile industry. His first design dates from 1810, but it did not become a success until he founded a factory in Poland in the 1830s. This artwork shows the statue by the French sculptor Jean-Baptiste Claude Eugene Guillaume, erected in de Girard's honour in Avignon, France, in 1882. It gives his birth and death dates (1 February and 26 August) and locations (Lourmarin and Paris). The statue was destroyed in 1942. Artwork from the second volume (second period of 1888) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
