La Liberalite Statue At Palais Royal Paris

This first HD photo shows a statue called La Liberalite, which in English is spelt Liberality, and as an allegorical statue it refers to the quality of giving, which is why this is sometimes also referred to as La Generosite, and this is one of eight statues on the northern facade of the Palais Royal.

La Liberalite Statue By French Artist Augustine Pajou

Here you can see a close up photograph showing some the detailing that went into producing the Liberality statue, which was by Augustin Pajou, who was born in 1730 to a family of sculptors and followed in his fathers and grandfathers footsteps, entering the studio of Jean Baptiste Lemoyne at the young age of fourteen.

La Liberalite Statue On Palais Royal Balustrade

Having won the Prix de Rome, upon his return from Italy, Augustin Pajou received numerous commissions for different statues, busts and sculptures, many of which are now held within the famous Louvre Museum and the Chateau de Versailles, but he also worked for other tourist attractions such as the Palais Bourbon and sculpted four of the eight statues on this facade of the Palais Royal, including this one of Liberality.

Palais Royal Northern Facade With La Liberalite Statue

Now we took the above photo while we were standing in the inner courtyard of the Palais Royal looking towards the entire left hand section of this facade that looks over the garden of the former royal palace, and you can see that La Liberalite is positioned on the third level by the balustrade, and is the third allegorical statue from the left hand side.
