We were again at the Musee du Louvre in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris when we took these high definition photos showing a statue called Abondance, which was sculpted by Jacques Leonard Maillet.

Marble Abondance Statue Aile Est Musee Du Louvre

This first HD photo shows a statue called Abondance, which is an allegory depicting Abundance, and this was originally sculpted as a model in plaster after a ministerial decree dated 30th April 1858 for the sum of 3,000 French Francs and was presented at the 1859 Salon under number 3370.

Yet this particular statue of Abondance was commissioned by the Minister of the French State on 24th January 1859 to be produced in marble for the courtyard of the former Palais du Louvre called the Cour Carree, and just over a year later the artist, Jacques Leonard Maillet received the sum of 5,000 French Francs for this.

Abondance Statue By Jacques Leonard Maillet

But here you can see a close up photograph of the Abondance with the immense detailing including the fruit, wheat and grains that this female allegorical figure is holding to depict Abundance, which was produced by Jacques Leonard Maillet, who was born in 1823, studying to become a French sculptor and winning the Prix de Rome.

Upon his return to Paris after spending time at the Villa Medici French Academy in Rome, specialising in decorative sculpture for public buildings, Jacques Leonard Maillet started to receive many different public commissions including for the Palais Garnier Opera House the Hotel de Ville and The Louvre, also being awarded the Legion of Honour for one of his compositions.

South Facade Aile Est With Abondance Statue

Now this image shows the location of the Abundance marble statue, which has been positioned within a niche on the first level of the East Wing and when you are looking at this facade of The Louvre from the Cour Carree, you will see this located sixth from the right hand side and to the right of the pavilion.

But if counting from the left, in theory it would be the seventh, yet is still the sixth, because there is no statue contained within the niche to the left hand side of the Aile Est Passage du Pavillon Saint Germain l'Auxerrois.
