Le Désespoir - Musée d’Orsay Jean-Joseph Perraud

"Le Désespoir (The Despair)" in 1869 by Jean-Joseph Perraud (Monay 1819 - Paris 1876). Marble (height:108cm). Musée d'Orsay, Paris. According to Eaton, "During the Second Empire, no sculptor enjoyed a greater reputation" although his style fell out of fashion soon after his death. The Despair was his most important piece and it was executed for the 1869 Salon after being received with universal acclaim, in plaster, at the 1861 Salon under the title "Nothing lasts in this world of pain".
