La Marine Statue By Jean Baptiste Carpeaux

This first HD photo shows the statue called La Marine, which is an allegory with a young boy holding an oar and horn, and you can see other details within the statue that related to Marine life or a mariner, such as a part of an anchor, to the bottom right of the sculpture.

Yet here you can see the immense detail that went into producing La Marine statue, which was by Jean Baptiste Carpeaux, who was the son of a mason born in Valenciennes in 1827, and initially starting his studies to become a painter then sculptor under Francois Rude, he furthered his career after winning the Prix de Rome and studying at the Villa Medici.

Jean Baptiste Carpeaux had a prolific careeer during the Second Empire under the reign of Napoleon III, and there are some famous works to be found at tourist attractions around Paris, such as The Dance on the Palais Garnier and the fountain, often referred to as the Carpeaux Fountain, which is by the Luxembourg Gardens.

He produced several decorations for the former Palais du Louvre, with La Marine being one of them, but unfortunately his career was short lived, as he passed away at the young age of only 48, and even the fountain mentioned above had to be finished by other sculptors.

But getting back to the statue of La Marine, as you can see from this photograph, it is located on the third level balustrade by the roof line on the Pavillon de Rohan, which can be seen from the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour du Carrousel.
