Left Hand Side Bas Relief Sculpture Fourth Window Group Aile De Marsan

This first HD photo shows a bas relief, or low relief in English, which is one of many that are located on the Aile de Marsan wing of the former Palais du Louvre, which was sculpted in stone and put in place in 1878 when this wing was completely redone.

Bas Relief Sculpture By Mathurin Moreau

Unfortunately we do not know the name of this bas relief, although they were all designed as allegories, and with this one depicting a man holding a sheaf of wheat, it is probably designed to represent harvest or abundance, which was sculpted by Mathurin Moreau.

Mathurin Moreau was born in Dijon in 1822, and following in his fathers footsteps to become a French sculptor, he went to Paris and studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, presenting works at the Paris Salons for French artists, where he gained recognition and many public commissions for tourist attractions such as the Palais Garnier Opera House, Gare du Nord and a statue for the former Palais du Trocadero, which can now be found at the Musee d'Orsay.

However, this photograph shows the location of the bas relief by Mathurin Moreau, which is on the third level of the Aile de Marsan to the left hand side of the fourth window group below the pediment, which can be seen from the courtyard of The Louvre called the Cour du Carrousel.
