La Verrerie Statue Aile Sud Musee Du Louvre

Now here you can see an allegorical statue called La Verrerie, which in English translates to The Glass Factory, or Glass Manufacturer, and hence why the female figure is looking at a glass she is holding and dressed in a smock style tunic.

La Verrerie Statue By Roland Mathieu-Meusnier

Yet here you can see a close up HD photo showing the Glass Factory statue, which was put in place on the South Wing of the former Palais du Louvre in 1889, far later than some of the others that were placed on this facade in the 1860s.

It was produced by Roland Mathieu-Meusnier, who was born in Paris in 1824 and initially studied painting before turning to sculpture and studying under Augustin Dumont at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, first exhibiting at the 1843 Salon for French artists.

Roland Mathieu-Meusnier sculpted many portrait style statues and busts along with medallions, and was commissioned to create no less than four different statues for the Louvre Museum, plus he worked on the Palais Garnier Opera House, but his works can also be seen at other tourist attractions such as within the Comedie Francaise, Pere Lechaise cemetery and the Jardin des Tuileries.

North Facade Aile Sud With La Verrerie Statue

However, in this photograph you can see that the Gloire statue is located within a niche on the Aile Sud, and when you are looking at the facade from the courtyard called the Cour Carree, this is positioned to the far right hand side of this wing on the ground floor level.
