HD photographs of La Pensee statue on Pavillon des Etats at Musee du Louvre - Page 444

Again we were admiring the Pavillon des Etats facade of the Musee du Louvre, and when we took these high definition photos we realised that the statue was another one called Thought, but sculpted by Jean Jules Allasseur.

La Pensee Statue On Musee Du Louvre

When you are within the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, you will see a pavilion or wing called the Pavillon des Etats, and this is adorned with several allegorical statues.

So to discover this statue called Thought, or La Pensee in French, this can be seen on the first level balustrade, sixth from the left hand side, yet there is another statue by the same name on the same facade, although by a different artist.

La Pensee Statue By Jean Jules Allasseur

However, this particular stone statue of La Pensee was sculpted by Jean Jules Allasseur who was born in 1818 and studied under David d'Angers at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris.

He became a French sculptor most recognised for his portrait statues and decorative architectural sculptures with several commissions for statues on The Louvre including the allegory you can see in this HD photo, and when he passed away in 1903, Jean Jules Allasseur was buried in Montmartre close to where he had his studio and workshop.
