Jean Jacques Pradier Bust By Louis Desprez

This first HD photo shows the marble bust of Jean Jacques Pradier, who is also known as James Pradier, and this was part of a series of busts portraying different artists, that was commissioned by the Administration of the Fine Arts in 1886.

This was in order to decorate the facade of the Orangerie by the Musee du Luxembourg, which is just one of the tourist attractions that can be found within the Luxembourg Gardens opposite the Rosery.

And this bust statue was produced by Louis Desprez who was born in Paris and became a French sculptor, winning the Prix de Rome in 1826, and is mainly recognised for his numerous busts and statues of famous people.

Jean Jacques Pradier Bust Jardin Du Luxembourg

So, the bust of James Pradier was put in place in 1888, which is where it remains for all to enjoy today, however, this particular artist is not as well known as many others from his time and is often forgotten.

But born in the May of 1790 in Geneva, he moved to Paris becoming a sculptor and won the Prix de Rome, so went to Rome to continue his studies between the years 1814 to 1818 prior to returning to Paris.

And working in a neoclassical style, he even became a professor at the Ecole des Beaux Arts plus produced the twelve Victories statues that surround the Tomb of Napoleon at Les Invalides and he eventually passed away in Paris in 1852.
