Description: 
Until the 1960s, almost all the sculpture in the Tuileries Garden dated to the 18th or 19th century. In 1964-1965, André Malraux, the Minister of Culture for President Charles DeGaulle, removed the 19th century statues which surrounded the Place du Carrousel and replaced them with contemporary sculptures by Aristide Maillol. The garden was remade in 1995 to showcase the collection of twenty-one statues by Aristide Maillol, which had been put in the Tuileries in 1964. This is a more elongated, modernized and severe version of the Monument to Paul Cézanne, produced later. The drapery has almost been eliminated, the hair recalls the Greek Severe style and the hand is empty (the Cézanne Monument holds a palm branch.)
