This time while we were within the Cour Napoleon, we were looking at the Aile Turgot wing of the Musee du Louvre located in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, when we took these high definition photos showing a statue of Abailard by Pierre Jules Cavelier.

Pierre Abailard Statue On Aile Turgot

When you are looking directly at the facade of the Aile Turgot, as you can see in this HD photo, the stone statue of Abailard is located in between the windows of the first level, yet on the balustrade, and put into position on the Palais du Louvre in 1857, it is the fourth statue from the left hand side.

Pierre Abailard Statue By Pierre Jules Cavelier   

So this closer view of the stone statue was produced by Pierre Jules Cavelier who was born in Paris on 30th August 1814 and became a French sculptor, winning the Prix de Rome in 1842 and proceeded to reside at the Villa Medici in Rome for four years before returning to Paris.

He was actually appointed a Professor at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1864 and trained many students, while still sculpting numerous statues for different commissions including an Angel on the Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois church, which is the historical royal church located opposite the Musee du Louvre.

Name Inscription On Pierre Abailard Statue

And in this last image you can see the close up of the base with the name inscription, which is dedicated to Pierre Abailard, who was born in around 1079 with the name of Pierre le Pallet, yet it was when he went to Paris and studied at the school of the Notre Dame de Paris that he changed his name to Abelaid, which is sometimes spelt Abelard.

During his lifetime he was a medieval French scholastic philosopher, a theologian and preeminent logician, plus he was a composer, yet his love affair with Heloïse d'Argenteuil is what has made this figure legendary, and it is an interest read, so many lovers still lay wreaths, flowers and love letters at the grave site of Pierre Abelard and Heloise at the Pere Lechaise cemetery, even today, which is supposed to be where both of their remains were moved to.
