HD photographs of 2nd window RHS bas relief sculpture on Aile de Marsan at Musee du Louvre - Page 1161



While we were admiring the Aile de Marsan of the Musee du Louvre in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, we took these high definition photos showing a bas relief, which was sculpted by Pierre Jules Cavelier.

2nd window Aile de Marsan right side bas relief sculpture at The Louvre
This first HD photo shows a bas relief that was sculpted for the Aile de Marsan of the former Palais du Louvre, and although we have been unable to find out the name of this, we assume that it relates to The Arts, as you can see different elements such as a violin relating to music, a painters palette and a hammer relating to different forms of art work.
Sculpture with violin by artist Pierre Jules Cavelier
However, here you can see a close up of the bas relief, which was produced in stone back in 1877 by Pierre Jules Cavelier who was born in Paris in 1814 and entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1831 to become a French sculptor, winning the Prix de Rome in 1842.

Much of his work was inspired by antiquity and mythology and Pierre Jules Cavelier received many different public commissions for statues, busts and sculptures that can be seen at different tourist attractions including the Chateau de Versailles, Musee d'Orsay, Gare du Nord, Palais Garnier, Hotel de Ville and of course The Louvre.

So when you are in the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour du Carrousel, you will be able to see the facade of the ornate Aile de Marsan, and this particular bas relief is located on the third level, to the right hand side of the second window below one of the pediments of this wing, when you are counting from the left.
