As you can see from this first HD photo, the sculpture known as a bas relief had been crafted around a window on a facade of The Louvre, and this was named L'alliance de l’art antique et de la Renaissance, which in English translates to The combination of ancient art and Renaissance.
But above this you can also see a plaque with gold lettering that states between 1852-1857 Napoleon III reunited the Tuileries with the Louvre, and this ties in perfectly with the sculpture that was produced by Jean Marie Bonnassieux.
However, this photograph shows the first two levels of the wing called the Pavillon Sully, which is the ornate central pavilion of the Musee du Louvre that faces into the courtyard called the Cour Napoleon, located in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris.
Yet to be even more precise, the bas relief, The combination of ancient art and Renaissance in these photos is located to the right hand side of the entrance you can see here, which would take you through to the Cour Carree courtyard.
Now as we mentioned earlier, L'alliance de l’art antique et de la Renaissance was sculpted by Jean Marie Bonnassieux, which was between 1852 and 1857 when this, along with numerous other decorations and sculptures were being added to The Louvre Museum.
And born in 1810, Jean Marie Bonnassieux showed great promise as an artist from a young age, and eventually managed to study in Paris under another famous French sculptor, Augustin-Alexandre Dumont, becoming a joint winner of the Prix de Rome in 1836.
He then received many public commissions including several statues for The Louvre, although, being a devout Catholic, you will find that much of his work was for churches, cathedrals and funerary monuments, with his most famous work being the iron statue of Notre-Dame de France that was made from Russian cannons and overlooks the town of Le Puy-en-Velay close to the River Loire in France.
