Captif, dit l'Espagne

Captif, dit l’Espagne

Part of a wonderful scupture by Martin Desjardins of the Captifs: a set of four larger than life statues depicting four reactions to captivity. The spanish captive (young and fresh-faced) represents hope.

The monument was commissioned in 1679 by François d’Aubusson, duke of La Feuillade and marshal of France, who had distinguished himself in the campaigns in Franche-ComtĂ© and Sicily.

Further details about the statue are on the Louvre’s website.
