You will find the stone statue of Boileau located on the first level of this wing, virtually in the middle positioned between two windows and the Aile en retour Turgot is classed as being within the Cour Napoleon, even though you would need to be at the edge of the Cour du Carrousel nearest the Rue de Rivoli side to see the sculpture.
So the statue you can see in this HD photo was actually produced by the French sculptor Charles Marie Émile Seurre, who is often referred to as Seurre the Younger, because he had an older brother, and born in the February of 1798, he is most well known for his series of statues of great men, which include the bronze statue of Napoleon I located at the Hotel des Invalides within the Cour d'Honneur
But getting back to this particular statue, as you can see in this image, it shows the name of Boileau, which is what this person was normally referred to as, although his full name is Nicolas Boileau-Despreaux, and born in the November of 1636 in Paris he became a French poet and critic, with one of his masterpieces being L'Art Poetique.
