The Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois is a very historical church in Paris and completed in the 15th century this used to be the royal church for those residing at the former Palais du Louvre, however, many decorative features were destroyed during the French Revolution.

But when King Louis Philippe I was reigning in a period known as the July Monarchy, he put into place many projects for different statues and renovations to numerous historical buildings including this church with the statue of Sainte Radegonde.

And after winning the Prix de Rome in 1826, he started to receive numerous public commissions including works for the Musee du Louvre and several churches in Paris including Val-de-Grace and the Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois.
