This first HD photo shows a close up of the La Vengeance statue, which was made of stone and put in place in 1868 on the Pavillon de Tremoille wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and this can be seen from the Cour du Carrousel courtyard on the right hand side section of this long wing.
Now this allegorical statue depicting Vengeance was produced by Louis Leopold Chambard who was born in the Jura area of France in 1811 and entering the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1836, he studied under David d'Angers to become a French sculptor.
So having won the Prix de Rome he spent four years furthering his studies at the Villa Medicis in Rome and upon his return started to receive numerous commissions for different sculptures and statues including several for the Musee du Louvre, plus Louis Leopold Chambard sculpted many portrait statues and busts of famous people, and his works can now be found in museums and on historical buildings dotted all over France.
