This first HD photo shows a bronze bust of Andre Le Notre who was born in 1613 and passed away in 1700, as you can see from the inscription on the wall at the back of this statue located within the Tuileries Gardens and he was a French landscape gardener and the principal gardener of King Louis XIV.
So here you can see the entire niche where the bronze statue sits on top of an elegant pedestal, and you can see an inscription on either side, and when translated into English, this states: Author of this garden, those of Versailles, Chantilly, Saint Cloud, Meudon and most beautiful parks in France.
Yet even prior to working on the gardens for the famous tourist attraction of the Chateau de Versailles, he worked with Charles le Brun at Vaux le Vicomte, but also worked on the Fontainebleau gardens, and when working at the Jardin des Tuileries, he also created the tree lined avenue, which has become the Avenue des Champs Elysees.
But here you can see a close up of the bronze bust depicting Andre Le Notre and this was cast from the original, which is located in the Eglise Saint-Roch where his tomb can also be found, and this was sculpted by Anotine Coysevox.
Now Antoine Coysevox was born in 1640 in Lyon yet moved to Paris and became recognised as a major French sculptor of his time, receiving numerous commissions for busts and statues of famous men, along with monumental statues for different chateaux and castles such as Versailles and Marly, which has since been destroyed.
In fact, Antoine Coysevox sculpted the two equestrian statues you can see at the entrance to the Tuileries Gardens on the Western side by the Place de la Concorde, and if you are looking in the direction of these tourist attractions, you will find this bust of Andre le Notre to your right hand side.
And this is in rather an apt location, considering the bronze bust is within the niche of the wall below the Terrasse du Jeu de Paume, which was one of the terraces that Andre Le Notre created to provide viewpoints over the Jardin des Tuileries.
