This first HD photo shows a statue depicting Saint Gregoire le Grand, which in English translates to Saint Gregory the Great, and born around 540, he became the Pope of the Catholic Church from September 590 through to when he died in March 604, and therefore he is also known as Pope Gregory I.
Now this particular statue of Pope Saint Gregory I was produced by Simon Challe, who was born in Paris in 1719 and studying to become a French sculptor he won the Prix de Rome in 1743, which meant he could further his studies and career by attending the French Academy in Rome, and focused mainly on religious art.
Simon Challe presented works at the Paris Salons from 1755 right through to when he passed away in 1765, and this stone statue of Saint Gregoire le Grand was one of those, which he sculpted just prior to passing away, before it was placed within the Eglise Saint-Roch in 1766, however another of his religious statues in now held within the famous tourist attraction of the Musee du Louvre.
Yet this photograph shows the entire chapel within the Eglise Saint-Roch called the Chapelle Saint Genevieve, with the statue of Pope Saint Gregory I, or Saint Gregory the Great, located to the left hand side, and as you have entered the church from the Rue Saint-Honore, you will find this particular chapel in the transept area, past the nave on the right hand side.
