RHS Bas Relief Sculpture First Window Group Aile De Flore

This first HD photo shows a bas relief, or low relief, which is positioned on the third level, second from the left hand side between the windows on the wing of the former Palais du Louvre called the Aile de Flore, which you can see from the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel, however, unfortunately we have not been able to find out a name as to what this allegory depicts.

Bas Relief Sculpture By Louis Merley

Yet we have been able to find out that this bas relief was sculpted by Louis Merley who was born in Saint-Etienne in 1815 to a family of weapons engravers, and the majority of his career followed in his family footsteps as an engraver.

So therefore, Louis Merley is most well recognised for the designs on medals and coins, especially one depicting Ceres for the Second Empire that was produced in 20 gold Franc coins and reporduced in 5 and 10 Francs, although these are extremely rare, and he also became a teacher at the Ecole des Beaux Arts where he had once studied, prior to passing away in 1883.
