David d'Angers bust statue at Luxembourg Gardens
This first HD photo shows the statue bust, which was commissioned in 1886 by the Administration of the Fine Arts to adorn the Orangerie next to the Musee du Luxembourg, which are just some of the tourist attractions located within the Luxembourg Gardens.

And you will find that there are actually several of these that were chosen to depict different artists such as French painters and sculptors, with this one being commissioned to the artist Leon Auguste Perry.

Now this bust was produced in marble and it was completed in 1887, being shown at the Paris Salon the same year, prior to being installed on the facade of the Orangerie in 1888.

But this next image shows a close up of the bust of David d'Angers, who was born in Angers on 12th March 1788 with the name of Pierre Jean David. Yet wishing to become an artist he entered the studio of the painter Jacques Louis David, and so as to distinguish himself from the master painter, changed his name to David d'Angers, which in English translates to David of Angers.

So, David d'Angers become a French sculptor and he was well renowned for being a medallist, producing no less than 500 for famous men and women, both in France and abroad, yet he also produced numerous sculptures and statues including an equestrian monument to General Gobert that is located in Pere Lachaise cemetery plus the pediment sculpture for The Pantheon.

Therefore, you can no doubt understand why he was one of the artists chosen to be depicted on the historical building of the Orangery, and as we mentioned earlier, this was sculpted by Leon Auguste Perrey.

And Leon Auguste Perrey was born on 24th August 1841, becoming a French sculptor himself, with his debut at the 1866 Paris Salon, and from there he went on to receiving commissions for several tourist attractions in Paris including the Hotel de Ville, the Eglise Saint Eustache and the Palais du Louvre and still presented works at numerous future Salons.
