"L'Art" by Laurent Marqueste is a bronze statue that represents the personification of the art, by Laurent Marqueste, in front, left, of the Hôtel de Ville de Paris (City Hall). The statue depicts a female figure holding a lyre, symbolizing the harmonious combination of sound and image that characterizes the art. The figure is shown in a relaxed pose, as if she is enjoying her own creation. The statue is characterized by its flowing lines, as well as its sense of movement and grace. At the time of its creation, "L'Art" was widely praised for its innovative style and its powerful depiction of the female form. Today, the statue remains a significant example of Marqueste's ability to merge classical forms with modern elements, creating works that are both timeless and contemporary. "L'Art" is a beautiful representation of the connection between art and beauty, making it a timeless work of art.


Laurent-Honoré Marqueste (1848-1920) was a French sculptor in the neo-Baroque Beaux-Arts tradition. He was a pupil of François Jouffroy and of Alexandre Falguière.[1] Marqueste won the Prix de Rome in 1871.
