Gloire Divine Sculpture In Chapel Of The Virgin At Eglise Saint-Roch

This first HD photo shows La Chapelle de la Vierge, in English, The Chapel of the Virgin, which was constructed by Jules Hardouin Mansart in a Baroque style with stained glass windows and a dome, that was then adorned with statues and sculptures including the large unusual sculpture above the Nativity statue group called Gloire Divine.

Gloire Divine Sculpture By French Sculptor Etienne Maurice Falconet

Gloire Divine translates in English to Divine Glory, and sculpted by Etienne Maurice Falconet, he was inspired by the St Peters Basilica in Vatican City, Rome, Italy, which has a very similar style of sculpture providing rays of light, although the Divine Glory in the Eglise Saint-Roch was produced in a late 18th century French art movement style called Rococo.

Eglise Saint-Roch Gilded Sculpture Divine Glory

Etienne Maurice Falconet was born in Paris in 1716 and studied to become a French sculptor starting to present works at the Salons for French artists and produced this sculpture of Divine Glory along with other statues for the Saint-Roch Church, but from 1757 through to 1766 worked for Sevres, which is where many of his works are now held within their museum.

And here is a photograph showing another angle of the Divine Glory sculpture by Etienne Maurice Falconet in the Chapel of the Virgin at the Eglise Saint-Roch, which is located along the Rue Saint-Honore in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, and although this is a running Catholic Church with Mass and other events organised, it is also like a museum in its own right, with many of the statues and other art works, having been classed as historical monuments in their own right.
