La Vendange Statue On Rotonde De Beauvais

In this first HD photo you can see the allegorical statue of La Vendange, which in English translates to The Harvest, and this is located on the Rotonde de Beauvais wing of the former Palais du Louvre.

And as you look at the facade from the courtyard, you will find this wing right in the corner, and this statue is positioned on the third stage, or in other words on the roof line, positioned as the very first one on the left hand side.

La Vendange Statue By Jacques Francois Walcher

Now it was during the changes being made to the city of Paris, that it was decided that many of the historical buildings and famous tourist attractions should be adorned with additional statues and sculptures, and The Louvre was no exception, with hundreds of different French sculptors being commissioned for the embellishments.

So, this particular allegory of The Harvest was sculpted by a little known artist called Jacques Francois Walcher, and like many of these, a plaster model was originally produced before it was executed in stone, and the plaster model can still be seen within the Muse d'Orsay today.
