    Description:

    This statue has been moved from the crypt to a side chapel of the nave and assembled into one monument to Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette.

    The change during the Renaissance in attitudes towards the affirmation of the individual is reflected in the later royal tombs at Saint-Denis. As with the medieval tombs, some were commissioned for the abbey, while others were brought in at a later date from their original places in various Paris churches, having been dismantled during the Revolution and r…

    Description:

    Commissioned by Francis I in 1516, was completed only in 1531. Possibly designed by Guido Mazzoni or Jean Perréal, it shows signs of an attempt to combine the French and Italian traditions in a monumental style. The two naked recumbent figures of the King and Queen, visible through the arcading of the superstructure, were placed beneath representations of the royal couple shown kneeling at prayer on top of the monument. These strikingly realistic figures are attributed to Guillaume Regnault (…

    Description:

    Of the vast collection of sculptures planned for this work and entrusted by Primaticcio to Germain Pilon in 1560, the only pieces that have survived are this tomb (imperfectly reconstructed by Viollet-le-Duc). The tomb itself, completed in 1573, took the form of a temple guarded by four large figures representing the Cardinal Virtues, elegant works in bronze, executed in 1565 by Pilon and Jacquiot Ponce. Inside the temple lie the effigies, represented naked; while adhering to the tradition es…

    Description:

    The tomb of Francis I and Claude of France, commissioned by Henry II from Philibert de L'Orme in 1548, reveals a similar spirit but is still more grandiose in design and execution; it gives the impression of being an independent building, a triumphal arch constructed entirely in white marble. Decorative features were by the Orléans sculptor François Carmoy (fl 1536-1550). Carmoy roughed out the effigies and the five praying figures that stand on the top, but all the figures were completed…
