The Eglise Saint-Roch is classed as an historical monument in Paris that was first started to be constructed in the mid 1600s, but not completed until a century later, and dedicated to Saint Roch, inside is like a museum with numerous works of art contained within its chapels.
So this first HD photo shows a statue group called La Pieta located within the Chapelle de la Compassion, which in English translates to Pieta located within the Chapel of Compassion, and this was produced in plaster in 1856 and installed within the Saint-Roch Church the same year.
Pieta is a specific word that means Pity in Italian, and in art, whether it be drawing, painting or sculpture, a Pieta statue group is usually portrayed with the Virgin Mary cradling the dead body of her son Jesus, just as you can see in this close up photograph of the plaster Pieta statue group, which was produced by Frederic Louis Desire Bogino.
Now you will find that Frederic Louis Desire Bogino was born in 1831 and studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts under Francois Jouffroy and Eugene Louis Lequesne to become a French sculptor, first presenting works at the 1853 Salon, and from then on started to receive different commissions including for the famous Louvre Museum, plus this Pieta for the Eglise Saint-Roch.
So this photograph shows the tourist information board relating to the Chapelle de la Compassion and the different works of art and plaques that are including within just this one chapel of the Saint-Roch Church, which is on the left hand side as you have entered from the Rue Saint-Honore.
