Although the Orangerie was actually constructed in the 1830s to replace an older one, it was not until 1886 that the Administration of Fine Arts commissioned busts of different artists to adorn the facade, and this particular marble bust of Millet that you can see in this HD photo was sculpted by Emile Louis Bogino who also sculpted a bust of Lamarck for the Jardin des Plantes as well.
Now as we mentioned, this bust is located on the Orangerie, which is situated in the north west section of the Jardin du Luxembourg right next to the Musee du Luxembourg, and as you are looking at the facade from the rose garden, it is the first bust on the right hand side closest to the statue called La Peinture, which you can also see in this image.
So, the Orangerie has several busts of different artists, and this particular one depicts Jean-Francois Millet, as you can tell from the name underneath the sculpture, if you look carefully at the image.
And born in October 1814 he became a renowned French painter who was one of the founders of the Barbizon school in rural France, and is most well known for his paintings of peasant farmers and rural life scenes that influenced other artists for years to come.
