This first HD photo shows the sculpture called Fleuves, which in English translates to Rivers, and this is one of two positioned on the third level of the Aile de Flore that were put in place on the former Palais du Louvre in the 1860s.
So when you are looking at this facade from the courtyard of The Louvre called the Cour du Carrousel, you will see that this particular bas relief, or low relief is positioned to the left hand side of the fifth window below the pediment and the one to the right was also sculpted by the same artist.
So in this photograph you can see a close up of the Rivers bas relief, which was produced by Eugene Delaplanche who was born in 1836 and studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, winning the Prix de Rome in 1864, although he had already started presenting works at the Paris Salons three years prior, but after his stay at the Villa Medici in Rome, he received many commissions.
Eugene Delaplanche worked for many different tourist attractions including the Fleuves for the Aile de Flore and another set on the Aile de Marsan of the famous Louvre Museum, yet probably his most well known work is the statue called Africa, which is now on display at the Musee d'Orsay, however, some places state he died in 1891, while others say he disappeared, and this was the last year that any works were present at the Salon for French artists.
