So this first HD photo shows statue of l'Equence, which is an allegory that translates in English to The Eloquence, and this is a word derived from Latin that means fluent, elegant and persuasive when it comes to the art of speech, expression and writing.
And this elegant statue can be found on the first level balustrade of the Pavillon des Etats facade, which can be seen from the Cour du Carrousel courtyard of the former Palais du Louvre.
Now The Eloquence was produced by Jean Esprit Marcellin who was born in Gap in 1821 and initially became a pupil of Francois Rude at his studio, prior to entering the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris to become a recognised French sculptor, first presenting works at the 1845 Paris Salon.
From then on Jean Esprit Marcellin started to receive numerous public commissions for different statues and monuments, including several for the Palais du Louvre, which he executed between the years of 1855 and 1868, plus others for churches like the Sorbonne, and he continued working right up until he passed away in 1884.
