HD photographs of L'Art Etrusque statue on Aile Daru at Musee du Louvre - Page 654



We were at the Musee du Louvre in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris admiring the Aile Daru facade, when we took these high definition photos showing a statue called L'Art Etrusque by Pierre Hebert.

L'Art Etrusque statue on Aile Daru at the Louvre
L'Art Etrusque translates in English to Etruscan Art and this particular statue was put in place in 1857, yet the artist originally produced a plaster model of this allegory which was signed by Pierre Hebert in 1850, and this model is now held within the Musee d'Orsay.

But when you are within the Cour Napoleon courtyard you will see the final version of the stone statue located on the top balustrade of the Aile Daru wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and this is positioned virtually in the middle by the roof, which is the fifth statue from the left hand side.
L'Art Etrusque statue by sculptor Pierre Hebert
Now as we mentioned, this was produced by Pierre Hebert who was born in 1804 in Villabe, which is a town in the Ile de France region and becoming a French sculptor he received several commissions for famous tourist attractions in Paris including this statue of Etruscan Art along with others for the Musee du Louvre.

He also produced several monuments before passing away in 1869, yet we would like to point out that Pierre Hebert also had a son who followed in his footsteps and became a well recognised French sculptor, so do not get confused, as the name of his son was Pierre Eugene Emile Hebert.
