This first HD photo show a bas relief sculpture called Jesus trahi par Judas, which in English translates to Jesus betrayed by Judas, and this is one of several that were produced in 1819 specifically to adorn different chapels within the Eglise Saint-Roch.
So here you can see a close up photograph showing some of the detailing on this biblical scene, which was produced in plaster by Louis Pierre Deseine who was born in Paris in 1749 and studied to become a French sculptor, winning the Prix de Rome, originally known as the Colbert Prize, which meant he could further his studies in Rome.
Upon his return, Louis Pierre Deseine received numerous commissions for different statues and sculptures along with busts of famous people, also becoming the sculptor of the Prince de Conde where many works are still at Chateau de Chantilly, and today others can be seen at many tourist attractions including The Louvre, Chateau de Versailles, Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, and within the Eglise Saint-Roch.
Now here you can see the entire chapel within the Eglise Saint-Roch called the Chapelle Saint Vincent de Paul, with one of the six bas reliefs in plaster, which are referred to as the Stations of the Cross, also known as the Stations of Christ, and as we mentioned earlier, this particular plaster sculpture is called Jesus trahi par Judas.
However, here you can see the tourist information board that had been placed on a stand in front of the chapel, which had actually been written out in French and English, providing more details about Saint Vincent de Paul, including his feast day according to the Roman Catholic Calendar, along with information on the different art works contained within this one small side area of the Eglise Saint-Roch.
