RHS Caryatid On Pavillon Daru Musee Du Louvre

Caryatids have been used for centuries with some of the oldest dating back to around 500 BC, and are used as ornate female figures instead of columns or pillars, just like you can see in this first HD photo we took showing one of the caryatids on the former Palais du Louvre.

RHS Caryatid By Jean Louis Brian

So this particular caryatid, spelt cariatide in French, was produced by Jean Louis Brian, who like his elder brother, became a French sculptor after having studied under David d'Angers leading to him winning the Prix de Rome in 1832.

And this meant he received numerous public commissions for different statues and sculptures on tourist attractions such as the Musee du Louvre, but also for the Gare de l'Est and several churches in Paris prior to passing away in 1864, having never truly come to terms with his brothers death three years prior.

But this last photograph shows the location of the Caryatid on the Pavillon Daru wing of the Palais du Louvre, and located on the third level, this is the one to the right hand side of the dormer window below the pediment, and can be seen from the courtyard called the Cour Napoleon.
