So here you can see a close up of the Nymphe Marine statue, which was produced by Albert-Ernest Carrier de Belleuse, known as Carrier-Belleuse, who was born in 1824, became a prolific artist and sculptor, working the majority of his life in Paris, whilst also receiving many students within his own workshop including those that were to become major sculptors themselves such as Auguste Rodin.

And it was actually during the redevelopment of Paris by Baron Haussmann that many different decorations and embellishments were added throughout the city, many of which were designed by Gabriel Davioud, who was born in 1823 and became an architect, eventually appointed Inspector General of Architectural Works and then Chief Architect.

And although the Fontaines du Theatre-Francais were designed by Gabriel Davioud, he commissioned different sculptors to produce the end results of the statuary including this Marine Nymph by Carrier-Belleuse located on the top of one particular fountain, which was put in place in 1874.
