Les Combats statue by Jean Francois Soitoux
Now this particular statue was produced in stone by Jean Francois Soitoux who was born in September 1816 and studied under David d'Angers to become a French sculptor, and after first exhibiting at the 1850 Paris Salon, he started to receive several public commissions.

In fact, Jean Francois Soitoux received several different orders for the Musee du Louvre including two for the series of famous French men, this one of Les Combats and other allegories, along with two mythical figures, thus having a successful career and even being awarded the Legion of Honour in 1866.
