Now this next image shows a closer view of the statue and its impressive detail depicting Nicolas Poussin, which was produced by the famous French sculptor Francois Rude, who was born in Dijon in 1784, yet spent a lot of time in Paris, and after being awarded the Legion of Honour for one of his works, he received several public commissions including the La Marseillaise on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.

Name Inscription On Nicolas Poussin Statue

And in this last photograph you can see the plaque at the base of the stone statue, which is dedicated to Nicolas Poussin, who was born in 1594 and became a painter, yet spent a considerable amount of time in Rome, apart from when Cardinal Richelieu ordered him back to France to serve as the painter for King Louis XIII.

And over following years he produced numerous different paintings, although he went back to Rome, which is where he died in 1865, but his paintings can still be found in numerous European museums including The Louvre that has the most substantial collection of Poussin works.
