Now this statue was produced by Louis Desprez who was born in Paris in 1799 and became a French sculptor and was at one point a pupil of Francois Joseph Bosio, winning the Prix de Rome in 1826 he spent some time there before returning to Paris where he focused on busts and portrait statues like the one in this image.
