In this first HD photo you can see a female figure located within a niche on the second level of the Aile de Flore, and called Pecheuse, which translates in English to Fisherwoman, this can be found as the seventh statue from the right hand side.
Now this allegory was produced by Jean Baptiste Paul Cabet who was born in 1815 and after initially studying at the school of fine arts in Dijon, he went to Paris where he studied under Francois Rude, and he was the favourite pupil of this famous French sculptor.
However, he spent some time in exile in Russia after showing hostility towards King Louis Philippe with his Republican ideas, and produced several bas reliefs for the cathedral in St Petersburg, but upon his return to Paris started to receive several orders for embellishments to adorn different tourist attractions in Paris, such as the Palais Garnier and the Palais du Louvre including this one of Pecheuse.
Jean Baptiste Paul Cabet worked very closely with Francois Rude for many years, and even finished some of his sculptures when his master passed away, and in 1868 was awarded the Legion of Honour, passing away at his home in Paris eight years later in the October of 1876.
