Aile De Marsan Second Window Left Hand Side Bas Relief Sculpture

This first HD photo shows a bas relief, which is called a low relief in English that depicts a gentleman holding a globe and a compass, and although we have been unable to find out a name for this sculpture, we assume that it relates to either a cartographer or an astronomer, although the way he is looking up indicates it is more likely to be the latter, which was put in place on the former Palais du Louvre in the 1870s.

Bas Relief Sculpture By French Sculpture Pierre Jules Cavelier

So here you can see a close up of the stone bas relief, which was produced by Pierre Jules Cavelier who was born in Paris in 1814 and entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts to study painting along with sculpture under David d'Angers, winning the Prix de Rome for sculpture in 1842, so he spent four years at the Villa Medici to further his studies and career.

Upon his return, Pierre Jules Cavelier received numerous public commissions for different sculptures and statues that adorn famous tourist attractions including The Louvre, Gare du Nord, Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois and the Tour Saint Jacques, before becoming a professor at the Fine Arts school where he trained many different students including Louis Ernest Barrias and Eugene Guillaume to name a couple.

Aile De Marsan Second Window LHS Bas Relief Sculpture At The Louvre

However, this photograph shows the location of the bas relief on the Aile de Marsan, which can be seen from the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour du Carrousel, and when you are looking at this facade, you will see that this is positioned on the third level, to the left hand side of the second window below the pediment.
