Aristide Maillol’s classical sculpture, entitled Monument à Cézanne, sits on the broad terrace that runs between the Carrousel Garden and the Grand Carré. Maillol’s original sculpture (1912-1925) was first installed in the Tuileries in 1929.

The Monument à Cézanne in this photograph is a copy made in 1943; the original sculpture is now on display in the nearby Musée d’Orsay. Many additional works by Maillol were installed in the gardens in 1964.
