The Orangerie is one of the many tourist attractions that can be found within the Luxembourg Gardens, which is home to numerous statues, sculptures and monuments, and when the new Musee du Luxembourg building was completed next to the Orangerie,, it was decided that the facade should also be adorned with marble busts.
So, the busts of specific famous French artists were to be included, and the marble bust of Theodore Rousseau was commissioned by the Administration of the Fine Arts in 1886, and put in place in 1888.
Now Theodore Rousseau was born in Paris with the full name of Etienne Pierre Theodore Rousseau in April 1812, and he became a French painter in the Romantic style but is most remembered for being a part of the Barbizon school of landscape painters, which is a term that refers to an area near the Fontainebleau Forest on the outskirts of Paris, which is where he passed away.
And this marble bust statue of Rousseau was sculpted by Henri Louis Levasseur, who was born in Paris, and received lessons in becoming a French sculptor from artists such as Auguste Dumont, and went on to present his works at many of the Paris Salons, also receiving public commissions.
