HD photographs of L'Agriculture sculpture on Aile de Rohan - Page 808



We were at the Musee du Louvre in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris when we took these high definition photos showing a pediment sculpture called L'Agriculture, which was by the French sculptor Combette.

L'Agriculture sculpture South facade, Aile de Rohan, The Louvre
This first HD photo shows a pediment sculpture called L'Agricuture, which is located on the Aile de Rohan of the former Palais du Louvre, and as you are standing in the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel, you will see that this is the second pediment from the left hand side of this wing.
Aile de Rohan L'Agriculture sculpture by artist Combette
Now this type of sculpture is known as an allegory, which means that it was designed to depict something specific, in this case agriculture, so as you can see from this close up photograph, there is a cattle head in the centre along with different types of fruit and grains on either side.

However, the person that produced L'Agriculture pediment along with several others for The Louvre is a very little known French sculptor called Combette, and we have not been able to discover any more information about this artist.
