HD photographs of L'Homme statue inside Jardins du Trocadero - Page 752

Again we were at the Jardins du Trocadero in the 16th Arrondissement of Paris, when we took these high definition photos showing the statue called L'Homme, which was sculpted by Pierre Traverse.

L'Homme Statue By Artist Pierre Traverse

This first HD photo shows a statue called L'Homme, which in English translates to The Man, yet sometimes the statue is just referred to as Man, and behind you can see part of the Palais de Chaillot.

Head And Shoulders L'Homme Statue

But this shows a close up photograph of the statue that has become rather pitted over time, although this is understandable considering it was carved in sandstone by Pierre Traverse between the years of 1936 and 1937.

Back Of L'Homme Statue

Now here you can see the back of L'Homme and its position by the fountains in the Jardins du Trocadero where you can get fabulous photos looking towards the most famous tourist attraction of the Eiffel Tower, which is on the opposite bank of the River Seine.

LHS Of L'Homme Statue

The Man was one of several statues that were commissioned to different artists for the 1937 Universal Exhibition in Paris, also referred to as a World Fair, and this is when the Palais de Chaillot was constructed and the Trocadero Gardens were re-laid out to how you see them today.

RHS Of L'Homme Statue

Yet here you can see the sandstone statue positioned to the left hand side of the lower steps as you go up to the esplanade and the Palais de Chaillot, or to be even more precise, this is the statue on the south west side, but the other side of the steps has a statue called La Femme, or The Woman.

Front Of L'Homme Statue

L'Homme was designed to look as though he was casually leaning back resting against a stone post supporting himself with his hands, which is the same pose that was used for the statue of La Femme, yet both were by completely different artists.

Head And Body Of L'Homme Statue

So this particular statue of L'Homme was produced by Pierre Traverse who was born in 1892 and initially studied art in Limoges within the Limousin region of France, prior to going to Paris and being admitted into the Ecole des Beaux Arts.

Jardins Trocadero Statue L'Homme

World War I interupted studies when Pierre Traverse was called up for military service, but after the war he started back as a French sculptor presenting works at many of the Paris Salons for French artists right through to 1960.

Pierre Traverse Inscription On L'Homme Statue

And here you can see a close up photo showing where the artist has inscribed his name onto the sandstone base of the statue, and although very hard to make out, it also states the year 1937 underneath, and this is located on the bottom of the back plinth below the left hand.

The Man Statue Jardins Trocadero

Pierre Traverse retired after 1967 and passed away in 1979, but many of his works can now be found within museums throughout France, plus there are a couple of monumental statues by this sculptor that can be found in public parks in Paris, including this one of The Man within the Jardins du Trocadero.
