This first HD photo shows the Monument du Henri de Lorraine, Comte d'Harcourt, which in English translates to the Monument of Henry of Lorraine, Count of Harcourt that was sculpted in marble back in 1693 and placed within the former Eglise des Feuillants, a church and convent that was on the Rue Saint Honore before being destroyed at the start of the 1800s, when it was moved to the Eglise Saint-Roch.
So this next image shows a close up of part of the monument that was designed to represent Time defeated by Immortality and the allegorical figure you can see here represents Time holding a book with writing on it that comes from the book of Wisdom and Ecclesiastes, but to the right hand side you can see a medallion style portrait depicting the Knight of Malta who was the son of Henri, Count of Harcourt.
Yet this photograph shows the other allegorical figure within the statue group that represents Immortality, and you can see that she is holding a medallion portrait, which represents Henri de Lorraine, Comte d'Harcourt, and this entire monument was produced by Nicolas Renard, who was born in Nancy in 1654 and worked on different projects for the King of France at the Palais du Louvre, Chateau de Versailles and Les Invalides.
However, the above photo shows the base of the monument dedicated to Henri de Lorraine, Comte d'Harcourt who was born a nobleman on 20th March 1601 and serving in the military he fought the Protestants in the Siege of La Rochelle and fought during the Franco-Spanish War, receiving a title of Grand Squire of France as well as being a Count, and he passed away on 25th July 1666.
The Monument du Henri de Lorraine, Comte d'Harcourt sculpted by Nicolas Renard is now classed as an historical monument in Paris, which can be seen within the Chapelle des Monuments in the Eglise Saint-Roch, and as you have entered the church from the Rue Saint Honore, this chapel is located .on the right hand side.
