Although he was not able to participate in the Prix de Rome competition Philippe Laurent Roland saved enough money to travel to Italy and spend five years studying there, before returning to Paris where he received many commissions for tourist attractions like the Chateau de Fontainebleau and the former Palais du Louvre, including this sculpture of Victoire et Abonance.
