1848 Clemence Isaure statue by Auguste Preault

Luxembourg Gardens 1848 statue named Clemence Isaure
And in this photograph you can see the detailing that went into the statue of Clemence Isaure, which was commissioned to the artist Auguste Preault for 12,000 French Francs, after a ministerial decision dated 23 July 1844, and it was completed in the April of 1848 and place within the Luxembourg Gardens that same year.
Jardin du Luxembourg marble statue Clemence Isaure
Now the artist Antoine-Augustin Preault, better known as just Auguste Preault, was a French sculptor born in the Mairais area of Paris in 1809 and produced numerous sculptures during his lifetime, yet being outspoken and participating within the French Revolution, his studio and workshop was vandalised resulting in many of his creations being destroyed.

Yet as you can tell from this image, many of his creations did survive and are now found in public places, and it was King Philippe I who initially decided on what queens, or reines in French and what famous women, or femmes illustre, would be within the former royal gardens.

So in this high definition photograph you can see a close up showing the top half of the statue dedicated to Clemence Isaure, who is a legendary medieval figure in around the late 1400s that was credited with founding, or maybe restoring the Academia dels Jocs Florals, which translates to the Academy of the Floral Games in English.
Plaque on the base of Clemence Isaure statue
And in this last image you can see the plaque located on the base of the statue for this mythical woman that was supposed to have left a legacy to fund awards in the form of gold and silver flowers that the city would award annually to the best poets, and she is still celebrated today, especially in Toulouse in southern France.
