l'Art Industriel Statue By Jacques Villeneuve

This first HD photo shows the statue called l'Art Industriel, which in English translates to Industrial Art, and this is an allegory made of stone that is positioned by an entrance to the Grand Palais, which was constructed for the 1900 World Fair in Paris.

l'Art Industriel Statue At The Grand Palais

You will find that there were numerous different artists commissioned to produce different statues and sculptures for the Grand Palais along with the Petit Palais and the Pont Alexandre III, which were all constructed for the 1900 Universal Exhibition, and this particular statue was sculpted by Jacques Villeneuve.

So as you can tell from this photograph, the Industrial Art statue is located by the staircase on the left hand side of the entrance to Grand Palais where you can access the Minipalais restaurant and the Mk2 cinema, and this is on the south east side of this famous tourist attraction in Paris, which faces towards the Cours la Reine and the River Seine.

Now as we mentioned before, l'Art Industriel statue was sculpted by Jacques Louis Robert Villeneuve, who was born in Bassan in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France in 1865, but he managed to enrol within the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris and study to become a French sculptor.

First presenting a work at the 1895 Paris Salon for French artists he was then commissioned for this particular statue of l'Art Industriel, which was completed in 1899 and put in place just before the Grand Palais was officially inaugurated. Yet after World War I, Jaques Villeneuve also received commissions for war memorials and commemorative statues, and many of these can be found within his home region.

Allegorical Statue l'Art Industriel

But this next image is a close up showing the detail of this allegorical statue representing a male figure for Industrial Art, which is located opposite another allegory with a female figure representing Decorative Art, although this was sculpted by a completely different artist.

And this last photograph of l'Art Industriel was taken just as we were walking around the corner of the Grand Palais having visited the pretty Jardin de la Nouvelle France, and you can just see the other statue on the opposite side of the staircase on the south east corner of the building as well.
