Le Triomphe de 1810 sculpture on the Arc de Triomphe
This first HD photo shows a high relief sculpture called Le Triomphe de 1810, which translates in English to The Triumph of 1810, also sometimes referred to as the Triumph of Napoleon, and this refers to The Treaty of Schonbrunn, that was signed between France and Austria, which is also sometimes called the Treaty of Vienna.

As you can see from this photograph, Le Triomphe de 1810 is positioned on the left hand side pillar of the famous Arc de Triomphe below the bas relief called La Bataille d'Aboukir by Bernard Seurre, which was a triumphal arch originally commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte, but unfortunately he never got to see this historical monument completed.

You will find that this high relief sculpture has many different attributes and here you can see Emperor Napoleon I being crowned with a wreath by a female figure as an allegory depicting the Goddess of Victory, relating to the Treaty of Schonbrunn, which was sculpted by Jean-Pierre Cortot, who was born in Paris in 1787.

Jean-Pierre Cortot studied to become a French sculptor at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, winning the Prix de Rome in 1809, and having sent many works back to France from Italy, he became well respected and started to receive numerous public commissions, which is understandable when you see the detailing of La Triomphe de 1810 such as the allegorical figure of Fame above Napoleon shown here.

Other attributes are also utilised within this impressive high relief sculpture on the Arc de Triomphe by Jean-Pierre Cortot, and the knelling figure at the feet of Napoleon I is designed to represent the conquered city, whereas to the left of him you can see a female figure writing on a tablet, designed to be the Muse of History, as though she is writing about the triumph of the Treaty of Vienna.

However, this photograph shows the entire Arc de Triumphe with The Triumph of 1810 positioned on the left hand side column, which is actually facing in a south easterly direction towards the famous Avenue des Champs Elysees, which is along the historical axis that travels through to the Place de la Concorde and further on to The Louvre Museum.
