La Fortune Statue By Georges Clere

This first HD photo shows a close up of the statue called La Fortune, which can also be translated into English as Wealth instead of Fortune, and this is an allegorical stone statue, which was produced by Georges Clere who was born in 1819 in Nancy within the Lorraine region of France.

Now Georges Clere originally started studying medicine, but he was passionate about sculpture and decided to enter the Ecole des Beaux Arts where he studied under the famous French sculptor Francois Rude, and started to receive several commissions for statues on tourist attractions including The Louvre.

In fact, Georges Clere produced no less than eight different statues, sculptures and architectural details for the Musee du Louvre during his career, yet many of his works can now be found at other museums in France, especially within the Fine Arts Museum in Nancy.

La Fortune Statue On Pavillon Des Etats

But getting back to La Fortune allegory, you will find this positioned on the Pavillon des Etats, which in English translates to the Pavilion of the States, and located in the far left corner by the roof line on the former Palais du Louvre, this can be seen from the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel.
