L'Art Et La Science Sculpture On Pavillon Mollien At Musee Du Louvre

This first HD photo shows a composition called L'Art et la Science, which in English translates to The Art and Science, that was produced in stone to be partially like a statue group and also as a sculpture, which was commissioned for the Pavillon Mollien of the former Palais du Louvre.

World Globe In L'Art Et La Science Sculpture

Initially a plaster model was executed in 1855, and once approved work was started on the stone version that was completed in 1857, with the plaster version now being held within the Musee d'Orsay, and this was sculpted by Francois Jouffroy who was born in Dijon in 1806 and initially studied in his home town.

Right Hand Side Female Statue In L'Art Et La Science Sculpture

Here you can see the allegorical mythical winged female figure to the left of L'Art et la Science designed to depict the arts, so hence why she is holding a traditional musical instrument and by her feet is a painters palette with paint brushes.

Now Francois Jouffroy become a very well recognised and much sought after French sculptor receiving many important commissions for statues, sculptures and busts, that were impressively detailed just like this pediment and the right hand side mythological winged female as an allegory depicting science, which you can see in this photograph.

L'Art Et La Science Sculpture By French Sculptor Francois Jouffroy

In fact, Francois Jouffroy received no less than eight different commissions for statues and sculptures to adorn facades of The Louvre, along with many others for tourist attractions such as the Palais Garnier, Gare du Nord, Palais de Justice and the Jardins des Grands Explorateurs, plus several busts that are at the Chateau de Versailles.

North Facade Of Pavillon Mollien With L'Art Et La Science Sculpture

Yet here you can see the location of the pediment on the Pavillon Mollien, which is actually the facade facing north into the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour Napoleon, and in this photograph you can also see two caryatids below the pediment on the Mollien Pavilion that were also sculpted by Francois Jouffroy, but to the right of the image you can also see the start of the Cour du Carrousel.
