Monument to Eugenio d'Ors (Madrid)

The Monument to Eugenio d'Ors Rovira is an instance of public art in Madrid, Spain. Dedicated to Eugenio d'Ors—noted Catalan writer, art critic and Francoist intellectual—it consists of a sculptural group put inside a fountain and a commemorative wall displaying a relief of d'Ors. It lies at the middle of the Paseo del Prado, facing both the Casa Sindical and the Prado Museum.

The project of the monument was authored by Víctor d'Ors, son of Eugenio. The front side of the monument facing the Prado Museum displays a bronze sculptural group emerging from a fountain; it consists of a female allegory (designed by Cristino Mallo) stopping a four-legged creature variously described as a "small dragon", a "pet stegosaurus" or a "baroque and spontaneous eruption".
