We were again within the Jardin du Luxembourg by the Orangery in the 6th Arromdissement of Paris, when we took these high definition photos showing the bust of Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, which was sculpted by Joseph Pierre Rambaud.

Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres Statue By Rambaud

It was actually through a decision made by the Administration of the Fine Arts in 1886 that the facade of the Orangerie was to be adorned with marble busts depicting different artists, and this particular bust was put in place along with the others in the series in 1888.

Now this particular bust statue was sculpted by Joseph Pierre Rambaud who was born in 1852 in Allevard, which is within the Rhone Alps region of France, and he died in Paris in 1893, but very little is known of his life and very few of his drawings, statues and sculptures remain, especially after a small museum in his original home town was looted.

Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres Statue Jardin Luxembourg

So, as we mentioned earlier, this marble bust depicts Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres who was born in Montauban on 29th August 1780, and became a French Neoclassical painter, and it was his portraits that have become known as his greatest legacy, having produced numerous portrait paintings and over 4,000 drawings, which were bequeathed to a museum in his town of birth, when he passed away.

However, his second passion was the violin, which was also left to the museum in his will, and with this Ingres left another legacy in the form of a colloquialism, Violon d'Ingres, which was given to the French language to refer to a persons second skill, rather than the one they are most recognised for.
