We were again within the Jardin du Luxembourg located in the 6th Arrondissement of Paris, when we took these high definition photos showing the bust of Francois Rude, which was sculpted by Joseph Tournois.

Francois Rude Bust Statue On Orangerie

This particular bust was one of several commissioned for the Orangerie facade back in 1886 by the Administration of the fine arts, and each one represents a different artist, and these were all produced by different sculptors.

So, as you can tell from this first HD photo you can see the name inscribed underneath the marble bust depicting Francois Rude, who was born in Dijon on 4th January 1784, and became a French sculptor, being awarded the Legion of Honour for one of his works.

And from this he received many different commissions including a statue of Loan of Arc for the series of Queens and Famous Women within the Luxembourg Gardens, yet considered too fragile to be on outside display, this is now within the Louvre Museum.

Yet the most famous work of Francois Rude comes from the commission he received for the Arc de Triomphe, with his statue group called the Departure of the Volunteers of 1792, also known as La Marseillaise.

Francois Rude Bust By Joseph Tournois

Now this next image shows a close view of the marble bust statue, which was put in place in 1888, and this was sculpted by Joseph Tournois who was born at the start of the 1830s in the Burgundy region of France.

He attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts, but was also a pupil of Francois Rude, which is actually quite apt, considering that Joseph Tournois was chosen to produce this bust of Rude, yet he was also commissioned for other statues including one for the Hotel de Ville in Paris and another for the Palais Garnier opera house.
