l'Art Decoratif Statue At The Grand Palais

This first HD photo shows one of the many statues that are located on the Grand Palais, which was constructed for the 1900 Universal Exposition in Paris, at the same time that the Petit Palais and the Pont Alexandre III were also constructed, and numerous different artists were commissioned to work on these.

So here you can see the location of l'Art Decoratif, which in English translates to Decorative Art, and this is positioned by the staircase and an entrance to the Grand Palais where you can access the Minipalais restaurant, tea salon, bar and lounge, along with the Mk2 Grand Palais section that holds a cinema.

Now this shows a close up of the Decorative Art statue, which is designed as an allegory and this was sculpted by Emile Rene Lafont who was born in Paris in 1853 and becoming an artist both in painting and sculpture, he spent most of his time in the city, which is where he passed away in 1916.

Yet this image shows a completely different view of l'Art Decoratif allegorical statue, which is on the corner of the Grand Palais facing the Cours la Reine close to the Avenue Winston Churchill, and this is on the south east side by the River Seine.

But getting back to this statue, it is sometimes referred to as an effigy representing the Decorative Art, yet there is another statue opposite which is an allegory for Industrial Art, and although this one was sculpted by Emile Lafont, the other was by a completely different French sculptor.

And Emile Rene Lafont was awarded a bronze medal at the 1900 Universal Exhibition in Paris shortly after this statue was completed and put in place on its stone pedestal, but other works of his can also be found at other tourist attractions such as within the foyer of the Opera-Comique, even though he is still a very little known artist.
