Now as you can tell from this first HD photo, the statue of La Paix is positioned on a pedestal, and this is situated on the first level of the Pavillon des Etats wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and when you are looking at the facade from the courtyard, this can be found as the third statue from the right hand side.
So, this allegory statue depicting Peace was produced by Jean Auguste Barre, who was born in the September of 1811, and after studying with his father who was a medallist, he then studied under Jean Pierre Cortot at the Ecole des Beaux Arts to become a French sculptor as well as medallist.
He was one of the first sculptors to make miniatures of famous people including Napoleon III and Queen Victoria, yet Jean Auguste Barre was also renowned for his portrait style statues along with stone tombs, and he passed away in Paris in the February of 1886.
