This first HD photo shows the allegorical statue called Theatre that is located on the upper level by the roof line of the Aile Henri IV, and when you are looking at the facade from the courtyard called the Cour Napoleon, this is positioned to the far right hand side.
And you can see that there are different aspects relating to the theatre that this allegory statue represents, such as books that could be for plays and the well recognised masks along with different props, etc.
So this Theatre statue was sculpted by Charles Capellaro who was of Italian origin, yet born in Paris in 1826, and studying under David d'Angers and Francois Rude, he became a French sculptor and produced this in the 1850s, which was put in place on the former Palais du Louvre in 1857.
However, because of his participation in the Paris Commune he was sentenced and deported to New Caledonia and banished from France for ten years, but Charles Capellaro did return to France and continued to produce different works, passing away in Paris in 1899.
