Back of La Femme statue
This first HD photo shows the statue of La Femme from behind looking over the Jardins du Trocadero with its famous water features towards the most popular tourist attraction, the Eiffel Tower on the opposite bank of the River Seine.
La Femme statue by Daniel Bacque
La Femme translates to The Woman, or just Woman in English, and here you can see the front view as though she is just resting back against a stone pillar, and behind you can see some restoration work that was taking place at the Palais de Chaillot.
LHS of La Femme statue
You will find that this particular statue was carved out of sandstone at the same time as the Jardins du Trocadero were being redesigned with the water fountains and the new building of the Palais de Chaillot was being constructed.

Several statues were commissioned to different artists for this particular area of Paris including the golden statues located on the Parvis des Droits de l'Homme, and it was Daniel Bacque who received the public commission for La Femme.

The Woman was carved out of sandstone back in 1937 ready for the Universal Exhibition that same year, also known as a World Fair in Paris and although some items were designed to be temporary, others like this statue have remained permanently in place for future generations to enjoy.

So as we mentioned earlier, La Femme was produced by Daniel Joseph Bacque who was the son of a cabinet maker for the French State being responsible for the restoration of national furniture, and he was born in Vianne within the Aquitaine region of France in the September of 1874.

Yet rather than follow in his fathers footsteps, Daniel Jospeh Bacque went to Paris to study art, and entering the workshop of Antoine Bourdelle he became a French sculptor having his own workshop on the Rue du Pot de Fer behind The Pantheon and next door to his friend, the painter Raoul Dastrac.

Daniel Bacque received several awards throughout his career and received many public commissions including this one of the Woman and for memorials to those that died during World War I, with one monument being for his home town of Vianne.

However, unfortunately he got cancer and shortly before he passed away in 1947 he destroyed all of his art that was in his workshop, so there are very few statues and other sculptures of his remaining, but this one of La Femme located on the right hand side of the steps below the Palais de Chaillot, is his most famous.

Now La Femme is located on the north eastern side of the steps that lead down to the Jardins du Trocadero, but as you can see in this photo, on the left hand side, or south west, there is another statue called L'Homme, or The Man, which compliments The Woman.
