Marble L’Orfevrerie Statue By Roland Mathieu-Meusnier

You will find that the statue of L’Orfevrerie was produced by Roland Mathieu-Meusnier who was born in Paris in the 1820s and although initially studying as a painter he turned to sculpture entering the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1841 and first presenting works at the 1843 Salon for French artists.

Roland Mathieu-Meusnier received numerous commissions for different statues, busts and funerary monuments that can be found at tourist attractions such as the Palais Garnier, Comedie Francaise, Chateau de Versailles, Pere Lachaise Cemetery and the Jardin des Tuileries, along with three marble portrait statues for the Louvre Museum.
