Genie De l’etude Ecrivant Sculpture On Aile Lescot At Musee Louvre

Genie de l’etude ecrivant translates in English to Genius of writing study, which is an allegorical bas relief sculpture depicting a young child writing, which was created in the 1500s for an extension of the Palais du Louvre.

In this close up HD photo you can see the detailing that went into producing the Genie de l’etude ecrivant, which was by Jean Goujon who was born around 1510 and worked alongside the architect Pierre Lescot, first on the Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois, which was the royal parish church, then on The Louvre located opposite.

Now here you can not only see the Genius of writing study located to the right hand side of the window on the Aile Lescot facade, but all the other impressive sculptures just on this one small section were produced by Jean Goujon, who was listed annually as the main sculptor for The Louvre between the years of 1556 through to 1562, which is when he left France for exile in Italy due to his religious beliefs.

So when you are in the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour Carree you can see the entire Lescot wing, and this particular bas relief sculpture is positioned on the third level below the pediment on the section next to the Pavillon de l'Horlodge, which has a walkway that leads to the Cour Napoleon.
