HD photographs of the bronze Taureau et Daim statue at Jardins du Trocadero - Page 653

We were in the 16th Arrondissement of Paris at the Jardins du Trocadero when we took these high definition photos showing a statue in a fountain called Taureau et Daim, which was sculpted by Paul Jouve.

Bronze Taureau et Daim statue in Jardins du Trocadero
This first HD photo shows a view looking at the basin which holds the statue of Taureau et Daim looking down the Jardins du Trocadero, past the Warsaw Fountain and over to the most famous tourist attraction in Paris of the Eiffel Tower, and in English this statue group translates to Bull and Deer.

So this next image shows a side view of the fountain with the leaping buck and the bull which was designed as a cascade water feature, and part of the complete renovation of the gardens that were redesigned by the architect Roger-Henri Expert in readiness for the 1937 World Fair in Paris, also known as a Universal Exhibition.

Yet this photograph shows the Taureau et Daim statue group with a part of the Palais de Chaillot behind, which was also constructed for the 1937 World Fair and replaced the original Palais du Trocadero, and these particular animal statues were made of bronze, having been commissioned to the artist Paul Jouve.

Now Paul Jouve was born in the Seine et Marne area of France in March 1878 and his father enrolled him into the School of Decorative Arts, yet this turned out not to be his calling, preferring to draw from real life, which is why he often visited the Jardin des Plantes and other places to study animals.

But it was not until the 1900 Universal Exhibition that he became more recognised and he started presenting works at numerous shows and exhibitions right up until the start of the Great War, when he was called up to fight in the trenches, yet still continued his drawings on the front line before being stationed at the headquarters, and fortunately survived the war.

So after World War I, Paul Jouve was already well recognised with many influential clients, being awarded the Legion of Honour in 1920 and also won a travel grant to study abroad, which stood him in good stead to receive even more commissions upon his return, including this one of the Bull and Deer you can see here, yet the other bronze fountain statue you can see behind was designed by a different artist.

And through his career that lasted until he passed away at his workshop in 1973 at the age of 95, Paul Jouve received numerous different awards including a gold medal at the 1937 World Fair for this gilded bronze statue group, which as we mentioned before can be found within the Jardins du Trocadero in the 16th Arrondissement.
