This first HD photo shows the pediment sculpture called La Legislation, which is an allegory depicting law and legislation, or acting out laws in force, which was put in place on a wing of the former Palais du Louvre called the Aile de Marsan, back in 1878.
So this next image shows a close up of the Legislation allegory with the central female figure holding a tablet stating the name, as though it is one of the written laws, and you will find that this was actually sculpted by a woman , which is very unusual for the 1800s, as they were normally thought of as being models for artists.
Now originally she was born Josephine Charlotte Helene Pilate in 1825 and followed in her fathers footsteps to become a sculptor, initially working with him, but later in her career, she started to sign her work Madame Leon Bertaux, which was the name of her companion whom she later married.
But because of the stigma of women artists, she ended up opening her own workshop and sculpture school for women, also exhibiting at Paris Salons, and it was from there that Madame Leon Bertaux did start to receive commissions for tourist attractions including four for the Louvre Museum.
So in this photograph you can see La Legislation pediment by Madame Leon Barteaux that is positioned on the south facade of the Aile de Marsan, and when you are standing in the Cour du Carrousel, you will see that this is the fifth pediment from the left hand side of this wing.
