Commemorating the restoration of a sculpture carved by French Romantic artist Triqueti for the cenotaph of Ferdinand d'Orleans (the heir to Louis-Philippe whose accidental death in 1842 represented a national trauma in France), this catalogue presents photographs of the life-sized marble figure along with illustrations of Triqueti's plaster models, sketches for the sculpture by Ary Scheffer, and other related works. Three essays discuss the complex history of the sculpture's creation, its place in Triqueti's oeuvre and in the art of the period, and the role of Scheffer in the original design of the work.
