The Greek Actor in the Luxembourg garden


On November 17, when I posted the photo of a Rodin statue, Joe, a reader from New York asked in the comments "I was wondering if you had some information on a statue in Jardin du Luxembourg. It is a statue of a boy holding a mask up in the air...". Well, Joe, I took a photo of this man last July and here it is... In fact this Greek Actor (it's the same of this statue by Charles-Arthur Bourgeois (1838 - 1886)) does not hold a mask but a manuscript for he is rehearsing his role. The mask is on the top of his head.

  2. Eric, I was jokking on the wine, on your previous post. Stange, there were a kind of War for the wine on this thread. A beginning . Rodin was a lover for wines . And a lover for Camille Claudel. I'm in love with her too, she was so beautiful with her so strong blue eyes, Is it possible to have this famous picture here ? Camille Claudel, so strange and so beautiful. A master in her art.

  3. Hi Eric! I love your daily photos. As the topic is the jardin de Luxembourg, I was wondering if you had a photo of the amazing fountain where the lake seems to be sloping downwards! If you don't take it soon, then I will!

    Keep up the brilliant blog!

  5. Hello! I was so excited. I found the photo of the child/boy holding the mask up. (someone on a travel board I frequent took it back in September and just posted the photos today.) Let me know an email and I'll be happy to send it to you and/or joe. :)
