Aile De Marsan Firth Window Right Hand Side Moses Sculpture

This first HD photo shows a bas relief, or low relief called Moise, which in English translates to Moses, and produced in stone in the 1870s for the Aile de Marsan facade of the former Palais du Louvre this depicts the legendary figure of Moses holding the Ten Commandments after he had managed to lead his people away from Egypt and from slavery.

Aile De Marsan Firth Window Moses Sculpture By Artist Helene Leon Bertaux

Very unusual for the time, but this was sculpted by a woman born in 1825 with the name Josephine Charlotte Helene Pilate and began her studies at her fathers workshop, Pierre Hebert who was her mothers companion, and initially she went under a pseudonym to present her works, but later in her career she stated using the name of Madame Leon Bertaux, or just Mme Bertaux, the name of the person she eventually married.

Helene Bertaux, or Madame Bertaux was an advocate for women's rights and she set up her own sculpture school just for women, and then founded a union of women painters and sculptors, yet her works had already been recognised and she started to receive public commissions including several for different churches, plus four for The Louvre including this one depicting Moses.

Aile De Marsan Firth Window Sculptures On Musee Du Louvre

In fact, it was actually through the efforts of Mme Helene Leon Bertaux that female artists were eventually allowed to be admitted to the Ecole des Beaux Arts and enter the contest for the Prix de Rome, and in this photograph you can see an entire section of the Aile de Marsan with the three main sculptures that were all produced by her.

And in order to see these you would need to be in the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour du Carrousel, with the bas relief of Moise being positioned on the third level of the facade, to the right hand side of the fifth window below the pediment.
