Angel of the Month

Perched in the niche of a beautiful 18th century fountain, Edmé Bourchardon’s marble angel smiles gently as a playful ram nips at his wrist. Commissioned by Louis XV to design a large-scale fountain to supply water to the aristocrats of the 7th arrondissement, Bouchardon created four angels to represent the seasons. This young angel, draped with a banner of roses, represents spring, while the ram represents Aries, the first astrological sign in the zodiac. The fontain is located at 57-59, rue de Grenelle. (Metro: Rue du Bac)
