Monument a Cezanne statue by Aristide Maillol
Aristide Maillol, born in Roussillon in the December of 1861 with a full name of Aristide Joseph Bonaventure Maillol, decided he wanted to be an artist early in life, and so went to Paris to study in 1881, and he became well known often receiving public commissions, including one for this particular statue that you can see in this HD photo.
Aristide Maillol statue Monument a Cezanne
It was actually back in 1912 that a monument was commissioned to Aristide Maillol by a committee of artists and chaired by Frantz Jourdain for Aix-en-Provence, that is a town located in the Provence-Alpes Cote d'Azure region, which was the birth place of the post impressionist artist Paul Cezanne, and this was the statue that Maillol produced to be dedicated to Cezanne.

Aristide Maillol sculpture Monument a Paul Cezanne
And as you can see from this photo, the statue called Monument a Cezanne, or sometimes referred to as Monument a Paul Cezanne, depicts a nude lady half laying and holding an olive branch, but the town of Aix-en-Provence refused the statue, and it was decided that it would be placed within the Tuileries Gardens, which happened in 1929.
The 1925 Monument a Cezanne by A Maillol
Aristide Maillol is probably most well known for his relationship with Dina Vierny who modelled for him for the last ten years of his life and set up the foundation and Musee Maillol, however, he also used other models including his former wife, and virtually all of his major sculptures in later years were of women.
Back of Monument a Cezanne by Aristide Maillol
And in this photograph you can see the back of the Monument a Cezanne statue, which was actually moved to a completely different area of the Tuileries gardens when an area within the Jardin du Carrousel was laid out to accommodate several sculptures by Maillol under the authority of Andre Malraux who donated these in 1964.
Close up of Monument a Cezanne
With this close up photo you can see the features on the face of this female, along with the hair which is tied back in a bun style, and this particular style was something that Maillol used in many of his females sculptures produced in his later years as a sculptor.
Monument a Cezanne base and plaque
Yet in this last photo you can see a close up of the plaque that is located on the base of the Monument a Cezanne statue, which is you can tell states Plomb, and this translates to Lead in English, and according to some sources, there were many different forms of this same sculpture produced, and apparently the original in the Tuileries Gardens was replaced with this lead version in the 1940s.
