Angers Off The Beaten Path: 14 reviews and 18 photos
The Galerie David d'Angers, located in a deconsacrated church, shows scupltures by the Angevin artist David d'Angers (1788-1856). Although they are very beautiful, the author simply copied them from originals. These photos depict:
1) Johann Gänsfleisch, better known as Gutenberg (circa 1390-1468), the inventor of movable pressing types;
2) a scene from Le Cid, the most important masterpiece of French dramatist Pierre Corneille's (1606-1684);
3) a scene from Tartuffe by Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, alias Molière (circa 1622-1673);
4) maybe Charlemagne (Charles the Great, 742/747-814), king of the Franks;
5) maybe Gavroche, a character of Victor Hugo's novel Les misérables.
I would be happy if you could help me identify better these two photos.
