Jean-Baptiste Eble on Aile de Rohan-Rivoli at Musee du Louvre
There are absolutely hundred of different statues that were commissioned to numerous sculptors for the famous Louvre Museum. So in these HD photos you can see one of several military officers, generals and Marshals of France who served in the Napoleonic Wars which were chosen to be represented on one of the exterior facades.

You will see that this statue is positioned within a niche on the 1st floor of the Aile de Rohan_rivoli, which is the wing that faces onto the Rue de Rivoli where you can find the entrance to the Musee des Arts Decoratifs, and is on the opposite side of the wing to the Cour du Carrousel and the Carrousel Gardens.
Jean-Baptiste Eble statue by Emile Fernand-Dubois
This statue depicts Jean Baptiste Eble who was born in 1758 and followed in his fathers footsteps to join the military in the artillery, rapidly rising through the ranks, even reaching Officer status within two years.

Jean Baptiste Eble commanded an artillery brigade at the Battle of Austerlitz and was made a Governor of Magdeburg, then three years later, the Minister of War for Westphalia.

Being that Jean Baptiste was also an engineer, in 1811 he was put in charge of Dutch pontoon builders for the Grande Armee and the invasion of Russia, utilising high tech equipment of the time including mobile forges for bridge building.

With the orders for troops to retreat from Moscow, Napoleon Bonaparte ordered these valuable pieces of engineering to be destroyed, yet Jean Baptiste Eble refused saying they would still be needed, which they were.

Arriving at a river where they were initially trapped by the Russian army the men built a bridge in freezing water enabling many to escape, yet this took a toll on the health of Jean Baptiste Eble and died shortly after returning from Russia, but it was his efforts that many lives were still saved, and why he was one of the people chosen to be represented on The Louvre.

In fact, it was at the start of the 1900s that the plan to add these statues of French Generals and Marshals of France was put in place, with numerous different artists being commissioned for the task, with this one being by Emile Ferndand-Doubois, however, these were not realised until several years after World War I had finished.

You will find that Emile Fernand-Dubois was born in Paris in 1869 and studying to become a French sculptor he even worked with the famous sculptor Auguste Rodin, along with working in the workshops of the Pierre Bingen Foundry.

Presenting works at the Paris Salons, his main recognition came from the commissions Emile Fernand-Dubois received for Monuments to the Dead, which can be seen in several places throughout France including one at Issy-les-Moulineaux, which is an area on the outskirts of Paris.

Yet many of his works including sketches and plaster sculptures are held within the Musee de la Loire, which he helped to develop and was its first curator, back in 1921. Although in 1925 he created an association in the Montparnasse area of Paris called La Horde, which was designed to help artists in need, and the following year was when Emile Fernand-Dubois produced the statue of Jean Baptiste Eble for the Louvre Museum.
