Now in this first image you can see one of the bronze statues located in the Luxembourg Gardens, and standing at 2.1 metres in height it was named L'Acteur Grec, which in English translates to The Greek Actor, and this sculpture was inspired by Greek theatre, hence why you can see a mask positioned on the forehead of the gentleman.
Here you can see a HD photo showing the side view of the L'Acteur Grec statue on its tall stone base, which was originally presented at a Salon in 1868, and it was designed to depict a young actor, with a manuscript in his hand, practising his role within a play.
In this next photo you can see a view of the bronze statue taken from behind where it is located in the middle of a flowerbed, with the majestic Palais du Luxembourg shown in the background, and this was sculpted by the artist Baron Charles Arthur Bourgeois.
Now as we mentioned earlier, the bronze statue called The Greek Actor you can see in this image was originally exhibited by the sculptor Baron Charles Arthur Bourgeois in 1868, yet was then purchased by the French State on 18th January 1873 for the sum of 7000 French Francs.
Here you can see a photograph we took showing the plaque related to L'acteur Grec statue and what it represents, and as you can tell, it was produced by Arthur Bourgeois who was born in the May of 1938 in Dijon and passed away on 11th November 1886 in Paris, and he won a Prix de Rome in 1863.
We mentioned earlier that this bronze statue was presented at a Salon, and after being aquired by the French state it was located at the Theatre de l'Odeon, then later presented at the 1878 Exposition Universelle, or World Fair in Paris, before being relocated to the Jardin du Luxembourg, which is where you can still discover this statue today.
