HD photographs of sixth pediment sculpture on Aile de Marsan - Page 838

Again, we were within the Cour du Carrousel of the Musee du Louvre located in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, when we took these high definition photos showing a Fronton sculpture, which was produced by Henri Charles Maniglier.

Sixth pediment sculpture South facade Aile de Marsan, The Louvre
This first HD photo shows the entire Fronton, which in English translates to Pediment, and this was designed as an allegory, but unfortunately we have not figured out the name of this.

However, this was probably designed to represent the Greek Goddess Aphrodite in mythology, due to the fact that this figure is positioned on a shell and in Roman mythology here counterpart would be Venus.
Pediment sculpture by Henri Charles Maniglier
Yet this next close up photograph shows more detailing of the allegorical Fronton, and as you can see, the surname of the artist was inscribed into the sculpture just above the left leg of the female figure, along with the year 1878, which is when it was produced by Henri Charles Maniglier.

Now, Henri Charles Maniglier was born in Paris in 1826 and followed in his fathers footsteps to become a French sculptor, studying at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and winning the Prix de Rome in 1856, which meant many public commissions came his way.

In fact, Henri Charles Maniglier was commissioned for several different embellishments for The Louvre, along with some on buildings like the Mayors office of the 11th Arrondissement, Chateau de Chantilly and churches such as the Eglise de la Trinite.

But he still continued producing different statues and sculptures, even after he became a professor at the School of Fine Arts in 1883, which is a position he held until passing away in 1901.

So, here you can see the top Pediment on the south facade of the Aile de Marsan, which is a wing of the former Palais du Louvre that faces into the Cour du Carrousel, and when standing in this courtyard, you will see the sculpture positioned sixth from the left hand side.
