Eighth Window Left Hand Side La Vigilance Sculpture On Aile De Flore

A bas relief, or low relief, is a specific style of sculpture, and in this first HD photo you can see one of the numerous bas reliefs located on the facades of the former Palais du Louvre, with this one being named La Vigilance, which was put in place on the Aile de Flore in 1864.

So if you wish to see The Vigilance, you would need to be standing in the courtyard of The Louvre called the Cour du Carrousel, and when you are looking at The Flore Wing, this is positioned on the third level, to the left hand side of the eighth window below the pediment.

La Vigilance Sculpture By French Artist Joseph Perraud

Now this particular sculpture was produced by Jean Joseph Perraud who was born in 1819 and initially became an apprentice wood carver before entering a drawing school, but receiving a scholarship he was able to attend the Ecole des Beaux Arts where he studied under Jules Ramey and Auguste Dumont to become a French sculptor.

Winning the Prix de Rome in 1847 Jean Joseph Perraud became well recognised, especially during the Second Empire, and received numerous commissions for statues, busts and sculptures that adorn many tourist attractions including no less than seven for The Louvre along with others for places such as the Palais Garnier and the Palais de Justice, however, he bequeathed many works to the Fine Arts Museum in Lons le Saunier, which is in the Jura area of France where he was born.
