HD photographs of L'Ete statue by Aristide Maillol in Paris - Page 525

We were still within the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, but this time within the Jardin du Carrousel section of the Tuileries Gardens when we took these high definition photos showing the statue called L'Ete by Aristide Maillol.

L'Ete statue at Jardin du Carrousel
This first HD photo shows the statue called l'Ete, which in English translates to The Summer, and this is part of a series of statues referred to as Les Saisons, or The Seasons, which were a commission given to the French sculptor Aristide Maillol.
L'Ete statue by Aristide Maillol
Along with three other statues including Flora representing Spring, Ete was commissioned by the Russian art collector, Ivan Morosov to adorn the corners of a neoclassical music room in his Moscow villa, and these were realised between the years of 1910 and 1912.
Aristide Maillol the summer statue
However, like many of the sculptures and statues produced by Aristide Maillol, several casts were made of the same one, and this particular statue you can see in this image, was cast in bronze and donated to the City of Paris by Dina Vierny, who was the model and muse of Maillol for the last ten years of his life.

So this is one of several statues by Maillol that can be found within the Jardin des Tuileries that was put in place in 1964, and can now be found in a dedicated area, which is called the Jardin du Carrousel due to its location by the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, and it forms a part of the open air sculpture section of the Musee du Louvre.

And you will find that most of the later works executed by Aristide Maillol focus around the female form in a neoclassical style, and much of his inspiration came after a trip to Greece, but also his own home area in southern France, with L'Ete being modelled on a young woman from his home town of Banyuls.

Now this next high definition photo shows the back of the bronze statue called The Summer, and before sculpting this final work he produced a torso first, which is thought to have been his idea to ensure that he got the curves and structure of the body correct for the pose he wanted prior to the finalised version.
Jardin du Carrousel L'Ete statue
Yet this last image shows the opposite side of the bronze statue of the naked female figure within Jardin du Carrousel of the Tuileries Garden, and you will find that Aristide Maillol often focused on nude females for his later compositions, yet with a meaning, like this one representing Summer idealising beauty associated with mythical goddesses as though enjoying the weather.
