Angel of the Month

Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
Silhouetted against the sky above the rue de Rivoli entrance to the Louvre, a trio of angels bears symbols for the Arts and Sciences on the rooftop crown of the Pavillon de la Bibliothèque. A standing angel twirls his sash in a parabolic arc, alluding to Mathematics, while another on the left unrolls a parchment plan for Architecture. A cherub on the right holds a lyre evoking Music. Influenced by the Italian Renaissance, sculptor Antoine-Augustin Préault’s virile, Michelangelo-style angels were lauded by critics for their boldness and lack of preciosity.
