HD photographs of La Verite statue on Pavillon des Etats at Musee du Louvre - Page 64

Again we were at the Musee du Louvre in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, when we took these high definition photos showing a part of a statue called La Verite, which was sculpted by Camille Demesmay.

Statue of La Verite statue north facade Pavillon des Etats
La Verite translates in English to The Truth and originally this was a really ornate statue produced for the Pavillon des Etats that was put in place on the former Palais du Louvre back in the 1860s, however, unfortunately, as you can see in this first HD photo, not much is left of this.

However, when construction of the New Louvre was taking place with all the different embellishments, the Minister of the State instructed a gentleman called Edouard Baldus to document with photographs and descriptions, all of the statues to adorn the facades of the Palais du Louvre, so there is still a record of how the Verite statue once looked.

Now this statue of The Truth was produced by Camile Demesmay who was born in Besancon in 1815 and initially started studying for a law degree before turning to sculpture, and starting to present his works at the Paris Salons, he received several commissions for statues and sculptures to adorn tourist attractions such as churches, the Luxembourg Gardens and of course The Louvre.

So even though there is not much to see of this particular statue now, you will find this on the Pavillon des Etats, and when you are looking at this facade from the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel, it is positioned on the balustrade by the roof line, fifth from the left hand side.
