Le Berger Statue On Grande Galerie

This first HD photo shows the stone statue located in a niche on the Grande Galerie Orientale wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and this can be seen from the River Seine side of the palace, and the Cour Napoleon courtyard would be directly behind.

Now this is classed as an allegorical statue, and when you translate the name into English, this means The Shepherd and it was sculpted back in 1857.

Le Berger Statue By Jean Bernard Duseigneur

So this allegorical statue of The Shepherd was produced by Jean Bernard Duseigneur who was born in Paris in 1808 and entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts to become a French sculptor.

And sometimes referred to as Jehan Duseigneur, even though he passed away in 1866, he had a very successful career producing numerous different works with several busts being held at the Chateau de Versailles, yet other sculptures and statues can be seen around Paris on buildings such as the Tour Saint Jacques and of course The Louvre, plus many more are held in different museums.
