La Fermete Statue By Sculptor Pierre Bernard Prouha

The statue of La Femerte translates in English to The Firmness, and is an allegory depicting a strong forceful man, which was produced by Pierre Bernard Prouha who was born in 1822 and studied under Augustin Alexandre Dumont and Jules Ramey in order to become a French sculptor.

After first presenting work at the 1855 Universal Exhibition in Paris he starts to receive commissions and get paid for different statues he had sculpted to adorn famous tourist attractions, with several for the former Palais du Louvre including this one, plus works for chateaux such as Versailles and Fontainebleau.

La Fermete Statue On Pavillon Mollien At The Louvre

Yet this next HD photo shows the entire top part of the Pavillon Mollien with the statue of La Fermete to the left hand side on the upper level by the attic and roof line, and you can see this facade of the famous Louvre Museum with its ornate architecture from within the Cour Napoleon courtyard.

But the original plaster model created prior to the main work in stone is now held within another very popular museum in Paris called the Musee d'Orsay, and both of these statues of The Firmness were created between 1855 and 1857.
