Mademoiselle Mars Statue By French Sculptor Gabriel Jules Thomas

This particular statue of Mlle Mars was sculpted in marble to depict her wearing a costume that she used for the play Le Misanthrope, also referred to as the Cantankerous Lover, in which she played the lead female role of Celimine who was a young woman courted by other characters such as Alceste, which was a play written by Molliere, that survives as one of his best known works.

Mademoiselle Mars always used her own jewellery while on stage, however, as with most theatres many props were used including chairs, which is how she has been presented in this statue that can be seen within the peristyle of the Comedie Francaise, which is the central area of the state owned theatre building with its columns, as you can see in this image.

Gabriel Jules Thomas was born in Paris in 1824 and following his his fathers footsteps he studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts to become a French sculptor, winning the Prix de Rome in 1848, which led to numerous commissions throughout his career for tourist attractions such as the Palais Garnier Opera House, The Louvre, Gare du Nord and several churches like the Eglise Saint-Etienne-du-Mont.

Now this particular statue by Gabriel Jules Thomas was initially produced in plaster, which is now held at the Musee des Beaux-Arts d'Angers, yet he then went on to produce the same statue in marble that you can see here, which was first presented at the 1865 Paris Salon under exhibit and catalogue number 3161 before it went to the Comedie Francaise.

However, this has also been included in many exhibitions that have taken place since, including the Universal Exhibition of 1867, at the Grand Palais in 1986 and the Petit Palais in 2012.
