This first HD photo shows a statue of Saint Andre, which in English is Saint Andrew, who is also known as Saint Andre the Apostle, yet this statue also has a full name of Le Martyre de Saint Andre and produced in 1823, this was designed to celebrate the martyrdom of Saint Andrew and specifically commissioned for the Eglise Saint-Roch.
At the base of the statue you can see a plaque and the first line of this state's St Andre par Pradier, which refers to the fact this was sculpted by Jean-Jacques Pradier, known as James Pradier, who was born in Geneva in 1790, yet went to Paris where he initially worked with his elder brother before entering the Ecole des Beaux Arts.
James Pradier wone the Prix de Rome, which meant he could further his studies at the Villa Medici, and upon his return received numerous commissions, many of which can be seen on tourist attractions around Paris such as the Palais du Luxembourg, Arc de Triomphe, Cirque d'Hiver and two of the statues for the Place de la Concorde.
A prolific and well respected French sculptor, James Pradier was also a member of the Academie des Beaux Arts and a professor at the School of Fine Arts where he first studied, and he worked on statues for several churches, yet many works are now found within museums all over France including within the famous Musee du Louvre.
Yet getting back to this statue called Le Martyre de Saint Andre, you will find this located in the transept section of the Eglise Saint-Roch on the left hand side as you have entered the church from the Rue Saint-Honore, which is located within a chapel called the Chapelle Saint-Denis, which as you can see from this photograph, has a central focus of an impressive painting adorning the alcove.
