Leon Laroque

(Last Updated On October 20, 2016)

Let’s do a sculpture today.  I haven’t posted one of those in awhile.  This is a beautiful piece, but unfortunately I’ve been unable to identify either the artist or the title of the piece.  All I’ve been able to glean from the internet about this is its location: the garden of the town hall in Tulle, Limousin, France.  Any help identifying who sculpted this would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: I have since learned the sculptor and title of this piece.  The artist is Leon Laroque and the piece is called La Leçon de Musique.  Many thanks to the diligent Pigtails in Paint reader who did the research and came up with this information!
