This first HD photo shows a bust depicting Fracois de Crequy that was produced in marble as part of an entire statue depicting the marquis kneeling, but unfortunately this is all that remains of the statue, which was sculpted in 1695 by Antoine Coysevox.
Now Antoine Coysevox was born in Lyon in 1640, yet went to Paris studying to become a French sculptor, becoming sculptor to the king, meaning that he worked on castles and palaces such as The Louvre, Chateau de Chantilly and the Chateau de Versailles, producing numerous statue groups such as the horses for Marly now at the entrance to the Tuileries, along with busts and statues of famous and influential people.
Yet this next photograph shows a close up of the plaque beneath the statue bust stating Francois de Bonne de Crequy who was born in 1625 to an aristocratic and military family, following in the same footsteps taking part in the Thirty Years War, and becoming a lieutenant-general before he was thirty, he was made a Marshal of France.
Known as Francois de Crequy, he was also the Marquis de Marines, and as you can see from the plaque, he passed away on 4th February 1687, however, some sources obviously have this wrong as they state a date of 3rd February.
So here you can see the statue bust of Francois de Crequy positioned on the wall of the chapel called La Chapelle des Monuments, which is on the right hand side of the Eglise Saint-Roch, as you have entered the church from the Rue Saint-Honore.
However, there is also another bust located within the Eglise Saint-Roch that was sculpted by Antoine Coysevox, which is dedicated to the landscape architect Andre Le Notre, who also worked for the king partly at the same time as this sculptor.
