This particular statue is an allegory and when you translate La Guerre to English it means The War, and this is positioned on the Richelieu Pavilion opposite a statue depicting peace, and both were sculpted by Antoine Louis Barye.
And to give you more of an idea as to its location, when you are standing in the courtyard called the Cour Napoleon, this is the central pavilion facing the I M Pei pyramid, and this statue of The War is located above the pillars on the right hand side.
Now as we mentioned, this allegory was sculpted by Antoine Louis Barye who was born in Paris and studying initially to become a goldsmith, he went into the field of sculptures, first of all producing small bronzes, but then went on to create some monumental sculptures.
He was noticed for his fine detailing, especially when it came to animals, and is most well known for being an animalier sculptor, however Antoine Louis Barye also received commissions for different statues on buildings like La Guerre on the Louvre during the Second Empire, but having become a professor of drawing at the Natural History Museum in Paris, and then elected to the Academie des Beaux Arts, his last sculptural work was in 1869.
