Mort De Lais Statue By Roland Mathieu-Meusnier

This first HD photo shows the statue called Mort de Lais, which is located on the south east side of the Jardin des Tuileries close to the Terrasse du Bord de l'Eau that you can just see a part of to the left of the image, and this was sculpted by Roland Mathieu-Meusnier.

Mort De Lais Statue In Jardin Des Tuileries

Roland Mathieu-Meusnier was born in Paris in 1824 and initially started to study art under a painter, yet then entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts under Auguste Dumont to become a French sculptor, presenting many works at the Paris salons, lots of which were portrait sculptures and busts.

However, Roland Mathieu-Meusnier also produced works such as this one called Mort de Lais that was also presented at a Paris Salon for French artists and subsequently acquired by the state for the Tuileries Gardens, and if you look carefully at the image, on the base of the statue in the middle you can see that it has been etched with the name Lais.

Close Up Photo Of Mort De Lais Statue

Now Mort de Lais translates in English to Death of Laish, and although rather dirty from the birds and the tree behind, you can see some of the details in this close up of the marble statue, which was completed in the year 1850, and this was placed within the famous tourist attraction of the Tuileries Gardens the same year.

Tourist Information Plaque Mort De Lais Statue

Yet this image shows a close up of the tourist information plaque that has been fixed to the front of the stone pedestal that the statue of Mort de Lais sits on, and as you can see it states that Roland Mathieu-Meusnier passed away in Paris in 1896, which was seven years after he had been awarded the Legion of Honour for works such as this and three others for the facades of the Palais du Louvre.
