We were within the Jardin du Carrousel section of the Tuileries Gardens by the Musee du Louvre in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, when we took these high definition photos showing the L'Action Enchainee statue by Aristide Maillol.

L Action Enchainee Statue Jardin Des Tuileries

The statue called L'Action Enchainee, which generally translates in English to The Action Chained, is a bronze statue that was sculpted by Aristide Maillol between the years of 1905 and 1908 and was dedicated to Auguste Blanqui.

But you will actually find that the original bronze statue is located in a small square in Puget-Theniers where the political activist Auguste Blanqui came from, yet the one you can see in this photo is an exact copy of the original bronze sculpture.

And this copy was first put in place within the Carrousel Garden section of the Jardin des Tuileries in 1964, which is where it remains today along with several other bronze sculptures by the famous artist Aristide Maillol.

So, Aristide Joseph Bonaventure Maillol was born in 1861, and moving to Paris in 1881 to study art, he first started out producing paintings, then later turned to decorative art such as tapestry design before becoming a French sculptor with his first major sculpture being modelled on his wife.

From this point on Aristide Maillol focused on the female form for virtually all of his works, just like this one of the nude female, although as you can see in this image, she has a muscular form with her hands tied behind her back, and this relates to the title of the statue and the Human Rights league.

Arisitide Maillol always focused on the curves and stature of the female form in a mix of a Greek, Mediterranean and modern style, more often than not, with their hair tied back, just like the L'Action Enchainee statue you can see in this photo, with the Musee du Louvre as a backdrop.

So the heroic figure of the sculpture The Action Chained, was designed as a monument to Louis Auguste Blangui to represent the repeated persecution and imprisonment he suffered for his political views, and shows the woman striding forward, yet still chained, and although the original met with disapproval at the time, there have been several casts of this statue by Maillol since.

And in this last HD photo you can see a close up of the plaque located on the base of the bronze sculpture, which shows the date the original Action Enchainee statue was completed along with the years of birth and death for this famous artist Aristide Maillol, who actually died in a car accident in 1944.
