La Beaute et l'Art sculpture Pavillon Sully
La Beaute et l'Art, translates in English to Beauty and Art, yet this bas relief sculpture located around a window on the first level of the Pavillon Sully is sometimes referred to as Art couronnant la Beaute, which means Art crowning beauty.

Yet above this there is also an inscription on a plaque in gold lettering, which states that it was in 1541 that King Francois I commenced The Louvre and in 1564 Queen Catherine de Medicis commenced The Tuileries, and this ties in with the plaque on the same pavilion on the opposite side where the two became united together.

Now this next close up HD photo shows the detailing of the bas relief sculpture around the window, and this was sculpted by Jean-Baptiste Claude Eugene Guillaume, who is normally known as just Eugene Guillaume, and born in 1822, he studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris to become a French sculptor, winning the Prix de Rome in 1845.

Eugene Guillaume produced a large number of different works for public buildings, along with monuments, busts and statues, many of which can be seen within museums such as the Musee d'Orsay.

Yet he was also a prolific writer, focusing on the topics of sculpture and architecture, so hence the impressive details you can see here of La Beaute et l'Art, and he went on to become director of the Ecole des Beaux Arts, then the French Academy in Rome, which was a position he held until a year before he passed away in 1905.

So we took this photograph while looking at the Pavillon Sully wing of The Louvre Museum from the courtyard of the famous tourist attraction called the Cour Napoleon, and to give you more of an idea as to the location of the Beauty and Art sculpture, this is positioned to the left hand side of the entrance around the circular window, and was put in place during the restoration of the Louvre between 1852 and 1857.
