La Geometrie Et l’Astronomie Sculpture On Pavillon Mollien At Musee Louvre

Now it was actually back in the 1850s during the restoration of the former Palais du Louvre that numerous artists were commissioned for different decorations to adorn the facades of this famous royal palace turned museum, and this particular one was sculpted by Jean-Baptiste Klagmann who was born in Paris in 1810 and studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts becoming a sculptor decorator.

Jean-Baptiste Klagmann worked for different tourist attractions such as the Palais Royal, Comedie Francaise one of the series of Queens in the Jardin du Luxembourg, the restoration of the Fontaine de Leda and the sculptures on the Fontaine Louvois, plus of course this bas relief of Geometry and Astronomy on The Louvre.
