Long Description:
La Fontaine d'Amphitrite est l'un des deux fontaines présentes sur la Place Stanislas à Nancy. La construction de la fontaine a été lancée en 1751 puis achevée peu de temps après. La nudité présente sur la statue fut à l'époque un sujet choquant. Initialement construite avec deux autres bassins à ses côtés (comme la statue de Neptune en face), ils furent retirés en 1771 pour laisser un accès vers le parc de la Pépinière.
