Mme de la Live de Jully Medallion by Etienne Maurice Falconet
This first HD photo shows a close up of a medallion that was sculpted in marble depicting Mme de la Live de Jully for her funeral monument that was initially produced as a drawing by Etienne Maurice Falconet, prior to the entire funerary monument being executed.

Unfortunately, much of the monument was destroyed during the French Revolution, however, the original drawing is now held within the Musee Carnavalet in Paris, and only the marble medallion plus the plaque survive at the Eglise Saint-Roch.
Mme de la Live de Jully funerary monument inside Eglise Saint-Roch
The Eglise Saint-Roch is laid out with numerous side chapels, running along either side of the church, and this particular monument to Mme de la Live de Jully is located within one of the left hand side chapels, and here you can see the marble medallion along with the plaque beneath.

However, this was removed in 1793 and passed to the Musee des Monuments Francais under inventory number 255, yet it was returned to the Eglise Saint-Roch, located on the Rue Saint-Honore, in 1818, which is where it has remained ever since.
Marble plaque for the Mme de la Live de Jully monument
Here you can see the close up of the plaque that was a part of the funerary monument, and when translated to English, this reads Madame de la Live de Jully, born Chambon, First Wife of Ange-Laurent de la Live de Jully, Introducer of the Ambassadors, and he was a financier plus a patron of the arts.

Now as we mentioned earlier, this was sculpted by Etienne Maurice Falconet who was born in Paris in 1716 and received commissions for several different works at the Eglise Saint-Roch along with numerous others for the Manufacture de Sevres, which is where lots of statues are now held within its museum.

This particular funerary monument was produced in 1753 just shortly before working for Sevres, yet Etienne Maurice Falconet spent almost twelve years in Saint Petersburg, Russia, executing an enormous statue of the Tsar, Peter the Great, which is probably his most well known work, prior to returning to Paris where he passed away in 1791.
