About Avignon Statue of Jean Althen

Avignon owes Jean Althen a lot. The Persian agronomist introduced the cultivation of the madder plant in Avignon, which became a successful industry within a short span of time. Despite this, Jean Althen died in poverty in 1774--apparently, he also made some poor business decisions. Several statues and streets in the South of France are named after him.
