Aile De Marsan 1st Window RHS Sculpture By Gabriel Jules Thomas

Unfortunately we have been unable to find out the name of this particular bas relief, which in English is low relief, yet as you can see in this first HD photo, it appears to be a historical figure holding a tablet as though either writing, studying or preaching.

But you can discover this bas relief on the wing of the former Palais du Louvre called the Aile de Marsan, and when standing in the Cour du Carrousel courtyard it can be seen on the third level below the pediment to the right hand side of the first window, having been put in place back in 1878.

This next close up photograph shows the detailing that went into this bas relief, which was produced by Gabriel Jules Thomas who was the son of a sculptor born in Paris in 1824, and entering the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1841 he won the Prix de Rome in 1848.

With this success and the works he presented at the Salons for French artists, Gabriel Jules Thomas started to receive numerous public commissions for statues and sculptures along with funerary monuments, many of which can be found at tourist attractions all over Paris including this one and others for The Louvre Museum.
