Aile De Marsan 6th Window Right Hand Side Bas Relief Sculpture At The Louvre

This first HD photo shows a bas relief, known as a low relief in English, and although this depicts a female figure, possibly a goddess, we have been unable to find out the name of this sculpture, and it was made of stone and placed on the Aile de Marsan in the 1870s.

Bas Relief Sculpture By French Sculptor Henri Charles Maniglier

However, this bas relief was produced by Henri Charles Maniglier who was born in Paris in 1826 and followed in his fathers footsteps to become a French sculptor, studying under people such as Augustin Dumont at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, winning the Prix de Rome in in 1856.

Henri Charles Maniglier received numerous public commissions for different statues and sculptures to adorn tourist attractions including no less than six for the former Palais du Louvre, along with others for the Palais Garnier Opera House, Hotel de Ville, Eglise de la Trinite and the Chateau de Chantilly to name a few that spanned his career right through to 1900.

Aile De Marsan Sixth Window Bas Relief Sculptures On The Louvre

Yet this photograph shows the location of the bas relief, which is on the third level of the Aile de Marsan to the right hand side of the sixth window below the pediment, which you can see from the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour du Carrousel, and you will find that Henri Charles Maniglier was responsible for the other two main sculptures you can see in this image as well.
