bronze sculpture patinated "Allegory of architecture" signed P. Aubé. It represents a draped woman sitting on a pilaster in the antique style holding in her hand a plate on which a sketch of architecture appears and in the other a compass. At her feet, architectural tools are placed. This sculpture is dynamic because of its drape and its position in movement. It seems at the same time pensive and serene. Symbol of the "Allegory of Architecture" signed "P. Aubé" on the base, for Jean-Paul Aubé (1837-1916). 

Jean-Paul Aubé (1837-1916) was a French sculptor, born in 1837 in Longwy. He studied at the Beaux-Arts in Paris with Antoine Laurent Dantan and Francisque Duret. His neo-renaissance and then rococo style was influenced by a trip to Italy in 1866. He won two gold medals in 1874 and 1876 at the Paris Salon where he exhibited. "Nancy-Artiste" (April 19, 1885): "He won numerous medals at the various Salons where he exhibited, and we have important works by him, such as The Dante placed in front of the Collège de France, the statue of Bailly, destined for the Chamber of Deputies, and the statue of General Joubert, erected a few months ago in Bourg, and which will appear at this year's Salon.
