Pomone Drapee statue by Aristide Maillol in Jardin des Tuileries
In this first HD photo you can see bronze statue of a lady holding fruit, and this is one of the many sculptures that can be found within the Tuileries Gardens next to the Louvre Museum in the first Arrondissement of Paris.
Aristide Maillol 1921 Pomone Drapee statue
This statue was sculpted by the artist Aristide Maillol in 1921, and he named it Pomone Drapee, which in English translates to Pomona Dressed, although, as with many of his sculptures, the female form shows through.
1921 Roman Goddess of Abundance statue by Aristide Maillol
And taken from the opposite side, this photo shows the statue depicting Pomona who was the Roman Goddess of Abundance, which comes from the Latin word pomum, meaning fruit, but specifically fruit from trees, and in mythology she was mean to be a wood nymph.
Statue of the Roman Goddess Pomona by Maillol
The Roman Goddess Pomona has been sculpted by numerous different artists over the years, and instead of being related to the harvest of fruit, in mythology she was presented as guardian for the abundance and vitality of fruit trees, and this is a closer view showing Pomone Drapee with a revealing dress, rather than naked like many of the sculptures produced by Maillol.
Fruit being held by Pomone Drapee statue
Pomona, or Pomone in French is often depicted with a bowl of fruit or a cornucopia, which is like a horn overflowing with fruit or flowers, yet as you can see from this close up photo, this sculptor has depicted the Roman Goddess holding fruit in each hand.
Side view of Roman Goddess Pomone Drapee statue
In this photo you can see that there are other statues located in the same area of the Tuileries Gardens as Pomone Drapee, and these were all produced by the famous French sculptor Aristide Maillol who was born in Roussillon in the December of 1861, yet moved to Paris to study art in 1881, but unfortunately he died in a car accident in Banyuls within the Pyrenees in September 1944.

And this image shows the back of the Pomone Drapee, and the classical female form was what Maillol focused on for many of his monumental sculptures later in his career, even though his early career was painting, tapestries, terracotta and wood works, but his most famous pieces are those of bronze statues.
A Maillol inscription on Pomone Drapee statue
In this photo you can see a close up where the sculptor Aristide Maillol has signed this bronze statue with his name, which is located to the right hand side near the back of the statue on the round base.
Pomone Drapee statue information plaque on the base
And as you can see from this close up photo, the statue is located on a square stone base that also has a information plaque, which provides the year of birth and death of the famous artist Aristide Maillol, being 1861-1944, along with the name of the statue and the year it was sculpted.
