This first HD photo shows the La Guerre statue, which in English translates to The War, and this is located on the very top of the wing called the Pavillon des Etats, and when you are looking at the Pavilion of the States from the Cour du Carrousel courtyard, you will find this in the left hand corner.
So the statue of The War was produced by the French sculptor Jean Marie Bonnaissieux who also sculpted a statue called The Peace for the same wing of the former Palais du Louvre, now known as the famous tourist attraction in Paris called the Musee du Louvre.
And Jean Marie Bonnaissieux was born in the Loire region of France in 1810 and originally studied at the Lyon Drawing School before being recommended to enter the studio of Augustin Dumont, then entering the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1834 to become a recognised French sculptor, he won the Prix de Rome two years later.
This meant he furthered his studies in Rome and upon his return received numerous public commissions including for the Musee du Louvre, but being a devout Catholic, many of these were for religious statues like saints, yet Jean Marie Bonnaissieux also produced funerary monuments and numerous sculptures that can be found in different museums and on public buildings all over France.
