HD photographs of La Guerre statue on Pavillon Lesdiguieres at Musee du Louvre - Page 686



We were again in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris at the Musee du Louvre, when we took these high definition photos showing a statue called La Guerre on the Pavillon Lesdiguieres, which was sculpted by Gandolfi.

La Guerre Statue On Pavillon Lesdiguieres At The Louvre

The statue called La Guerre, is located on the top level of the Pavillon Lesdiguieres wing by the roof line on the former Palais du Louvre, and when you are looking at the facade from the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel, this is located as the third statue from the left hand side.

You will find that this statue was designed as an allegory, and in English this translates to The War, hence why you can see the young boy, sometimes referred to as a Genie, blowing a horn, yet also in this HD photo you can see armour and a part of a rifle, etc.

La Guerre Statue By Sculptor Democrito Gandolfi

Now when we were looking at different sources for information on the architecture of The Louvre, we found that La Guerre statue was sculpted by someone called Gandolfi.

And because this was put in place in the 1860s when the Musee du Louvre was being restored and additional decorative sculptures added, it makes sense that this was by Democrito Gandolfi who came from a family of painters and sculptors, yet his years of birth and death fit the criteria compared to others with the same surname, as they are 1797 and 1874.
